    Local high school students are producing their 14th annual fashion show and fundraiser. Learn about this Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed event featuring local boutiques that benefits the Dragonfly Foundation.

    Students at Sycamore High School are doing their part to contribute in the fight against cancer with their annual Fashion for the Cure charity fashion show. 

    “All proceeds from the tickets, basket raffle, silent auction, and all prior fundraising go directly to the Dragonfly Foundation – a local nonprofit that provides comfort and joy to kids and their families going through cancer and bone marrow transplants,” explains Student Chairman Eva Armbruster. 

    Fashion for the Cure 2020 will be held on March 6 at Sycamore High School, and while the date may seem like a ways away, the students behind it all are already busy preparing.

    The show will feature student designers and models wearing clothing from TJ Maxx, Folchis, Bridal and Formal, as well as Dragonflies wearing shirts they have designed themselves. 

    The next show, in 2020, will be the 14th annual event and the 6th show to benefit The Dragonfly Foundation, and alongside Armbruster are co-chairs Grace Mirande and Zaynab Syed, who work in a committee of 15 Sycamore High School girls with teachers Deborah Klemt and Sarah Chapman. 

    “We also receive a lot of support from our student models, designers, and the rest of the Sycamore student body, administration, and community,” adds Armbruster. 

    Fashion for the Cure 2020 will feature a Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme and will include upcycled student designs in the fashion show. 

    Tickets for the event will be available in December at Armbruster says that last year the group was able to raise over $48,000 for The Dragonfly Foundation.
