Where can you watch models, drink champagne and help to solve world poverty at the same time? Nourish International’s Catwalk for a Cause—that is where. Nourish International, the College’s student-run organization that fights poverty, is putting on its first fashion show. The show is sponsored by Belk and presented by Tabbuli Grill. Student models will be fashionably clad in the only and only—Lily Pulitzer.
Catwalk for a Cause is Thursday, April 7 at 9 p.m. Admission is free; donations are encouraged. All proceeds will go toward Nourish’s summer food security project in Nicaragua.
“We really hope people come out,” said sophomore Nourish Transition Leader Ellen Claire Newell. “We’ve put a lot of work into it…months of work. I mean, how can you say no champagne and Tabbuli? It’s a perfect combination. And it’s all for such a great cause.”
All models are students from various organizations on campus. Organizations represented include greek life, CisternYard Media, Charleston Forty, Charleston Hope and more. Models walk at 10 p.m., but make sure to get there earlier for some food and fun.
Tabbuli, located at the north end of Market St., has an open courtyard with seating and a stage. You can also purchase a $5 vip ticket for a special table and bottle service. VIP tickets are on sale in Cougar Mall from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. today, April 7. The first 20 VIP tickets sold will also come with three raffle tickets. Nourish is raffling off items such as a record player, canvases, gifts cards, College of Charleston attire and more.
