The 11th annual Clear Creek Education Foundation Fashion Show, featuring CCISD high school juniors modeling fashions from Dillard’s at Baybrook Mall, will be held Sunday, April 2, at 4:30 p.m. at Mercedes Benz of Clear Lake, in League City.
Theme for this year’s show is “I Love CCISD….Where Inspiration Becomes Reality.” Students chosen to model are those who are in good academic standing and who demonstrate all that is positive about the school district, CCEF Executive Director Kaci Hanson said.
Proceeds will benefit programs that enhance student learning. Featuring runway seating, hors d’oeuvre stations from 10 local restaurants, and a variety of vignettes straight from the talented halls of CCISD, the ”I Love CCISD” fashion show will again be produced by the acclaimed Lenny Matuszewski,Jr., nationally known fashion event producer.
In anticipation of the event, all CCISD kindergarteners participated in a “CCISD Shines” t-shirt art contest, won by McWhirter Elementary kindergartener Mason Creger. The winner’s artwork will be featured on t-shirts to be sold throughout the district and at other participating locations. “Additionally, the evening will host an array of student entertainment, career and technology program demonstrations, and much more! Save the date! You won’t want to miss this wonderful show!” Hanson said.
“CCEF loves CCISD!” she added. “Through the fashion show, we’re able to do amazing things that positively affect the lives of CCISD students every day. We are truly grateful for the many volunteers and countless businesses and individuals who financially support this one of a kind event. We invite our parents and community friends to come out and join us for this exciting afternoon Supporting Educational Excellence in CCISD.”
