JERSEY BOYS will take their moves from the stage to the runway in an interactive fashion show event to benefit HELP of Southern Nevada on Sunday, October 2 on the runway at Fashion Show. The event will consist of a clothing drive, fashion show, prize raffle and exclusive meet and greet with JERSEY BOYS cast members. Emceed by KLAS-TV news anchor Dayna Roselli, the event kicks off at 2:00 p.m. with a retro-inspired fashion show followed by the meet and greet with cast members. The afternoon with JERSEY BOYS will conclude at 4:00 p.m. with a raffle of exciting prizes. Clothing drive donations will be accepted beginning at noon.
"We are pleased to partner with HELP of Southern Nevada and Fashion Show for this event," says JERSEY BOYS Producer Michael David. "JERSEY BOYS has gratefully been embraced by the Las Vegas community over the past three and a half years and this event is but one small way for us to give back to those in need."
Cast members from JERSEY BOYS will model the latest looks from Banana Republic's "Mad Men" collection on the runway. Following the fashion show, the cast will be available for an exclusive meet and greet for participants of the clothing drive. Guests will have the opportunity to meet, take photographs and receive autographs from cast members.
Guests can bring new or gently used clothing donations to the event to benefit HELP of Southern Nevada's "Career Closet" and HELP's Shannon West Youth Center. Donations for professional clothing including suits, dress pants, shirts and dress shoes for both men and women will be kindly accepted. Warm clothing donations for youth ages 16 - 21 including jackets, sweaters, hooded sweatshirts and socks are also encouraged and accepted.
"This event is coming at a critical time for HELP of Southern Nevada," says Abby Quinn, community outreach manager of HELP of Southern Nevada. "As the colder months are approaching, we have a much greater need for warm clothing for the youth. We also have hundreds of clients who are currently looking for work and having nice, professional clothing helps them to put their best foot forward."
For every appropriate item donated, guests will receive one raffle ticket for a chance to win exciting prizes. There will not be a limit on the donations accepted; however raffle tickets will be limited at five per guest. Donations must be received by 3:45 p.m. to receive a raffle ticket. More than 15 amazing prizes will be given away, including the Grand Prize package of two Orchestra tickets to JERSEY BOYS, a one-night stay at The Palazzo Resort-Hotel-Casino and dinner for two. Other prizes include an additional ten pair of JERSEY BOYS tickets and restaurant and retailer gift certificates from Fashion Show, The Shoppes at the Palazzo and The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian. Winners must be present to win.
