Mont Alto students hold fashion show to raise money for Haiti relief

4/8/2010 —

Penn State Mont Alto students held a fundraiser fashion show to raise money for the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti. Sponsored by Penn State's Lion Ambassador organization, the fashion show was held on campus last night in the Auditorium. 

About 75 students participated, and together they raised $150. All proceeds from the event will be given to the American Red Cross for Haiti relief. Seventeen Mont Alto students modeled in the fashion show. Its theme was "Decades" and within each decade (the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s), four different scenes were portrayed: Blue and White, Rep Your City, Sexy and Sophisticated, and Spring Break. The clothes and accessories for the female models were donated for the evening by Maurices of the Chambersburg Mall and the Gettysburg Outlets.

In addition to the fashion show, the Penn State Mont Alto Dance team performed and a walk-off competition got the audience involved. This event displayed just one way Penn State Mont Alto students continue a tradition of service above self.
