On Thursday, September 26, the Valparaiso Family YMCA presents “Our Mission is Always in Style” Fashion Show tobe held at the newly remodeled Porter County Expo Center. The proceeds from this event will support our Annual Campaign, which provides financial assistance for more than 2,000 children, families, or individuals; giving access to quality programs that all members of our community deserve – regardless of the ability to pay. The Y is dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities.

This year, the Y is re-creating the Style Show with the vision of telling the Y’s story through fashion. YMCA members will be showcasing the latest fashion from Valparaiso stores, along with the confidence, achievement and connection that the Y has helped them to attain. Models will include cancer survivors that have the opportunity to heal not only their body, but their mind and soul through our LIVESTRONG® at the Y program. And, active older adults that have found friendship and stay young with SilverSneakers. Children and families will share the values that they have learned alongside our child care curriculum and programming. And finally, individuals with special needs who enjoy an environment that not only welcomes but celebrates who he is.

Enjoy elegant hors d’oeuvres during the cocktail reception at 6:00 p.m. The runway show begins at 7:00 p.m. Guests will have a chance to win a designer purse. Purse raffle tickets are $10 each or 3 for $20 and can be purchased at the Y courtesy desk and the night of the event. Tickets for the event are $35 and are available online at 2019ystyleshow.eventbrite.comor at the Y Courtesy Desk.

The true story of the Style Show is unlocking the potential of a child, a family or an individual to learn, grow and thrive. The YMCA serves the entire community and is open to all. Through funds raised from the Annual Campaign, the Y provides more than $325,000 in financial assistance annually – for those individuals, families, handicapped and/or special-needs individuals who may need child care, or desire to build spirit, mind and body. The YMCA also provides free memberships to more than 10 area group homes and human service agencies to enable their clients to build spirit, mind and body.
