Hatboro-Horsham High School students will participate in the third annual Teen Fashion Showcase, which will be held Saturday in Warrington. All proceeds from this event benefit Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Cpi Photographics has partnered with Warriors for Tim, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting organ and tissue donation awareness, to host the event. It will be held at Club Casa, 1111 Easton Road, Warrington.
Clothing from local merchants, including Darianna Bridal and Formal Wear, Semoner Designs, Mandee, and iBcraftie, will be modeled.
Local teens are in the show and helping in various positions such as models, photographers, videographers, hair stylists, designers, makeup artists and more.
Besides Hatboro-Horsham, local schools represented include several from the Central Bucks School District, Tennent, Archbishops Ryan & Wood, Middle Bucks Institute of Technology and more.
The show begins at noon, with entertainment provided by DJ Vince Braccia, Dwayne Dunleavy, and teen pop sensation Felicia Punzo. The event will include raffles, door prizes and refreshments, as well as several vendors selling everything from food to jewelry to home goods.
The money raised during the event will go toward the current Warriors for Tim Transplant Research pledge of $100,000 to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. To date, the effort has raised $75,000.
These funds support research to make transplants more successful, to make life-saving aids more mobile while patients awaits transplants so they can go home, and to assist families facing the long and grueling transplant recovery, according to information from the organization.
