Sp-Arc-kle and Shine Fashion Show

Thursday, Dec. 3


According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans throw away nearly 70 pounds of clothing and textiles annually. At around 320 million people in the United States, we toss more than 22 billion pounds of apparel into landfills every year. Secondhand stores like Savers give garments a second chance with help from organizations like The Arc—which provides opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities—collecting donations from the community. The Arc and Savers are taking their partnership a step further with their first-ever fashion show, featuring models of all abilities. Art by Arc members will be on display, appetizers and cocktails will be available for purchase, and all proceeds benefit programs at The Arc, so by attending, you'll be doing some good, too.
