About Runway For Hope – The Fashion Charity Gala
Runway for Hope Ottawa is an event designed to promote local fashion by providing the public with information about Ottawa’s local fashion industry, as well as providing a forum to introduce the talented local fashion designers and local clothing stores. Proceeds for the September 2018 edition will be going to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (C.H.E.O).
Runway For Hope Ottawa charity fashion show is aimed at promoting local talent in the beauty and fashion industry. Our focus will be to promote and provide exposure for local talent in the fashion industry. On showcase will be clothing designs from local designers and stores. We will also provide an opportunity for local models to promote their talent by showcasing the local designs. An equally important part of the show is that proceeds will go to supporting a local charity.
The event will be held on Saturday April 7th, 2018 at the EY Center, 4899 Uplands Dr, Gloucester, ON K1V 1S2.
Door open at 4:00pm and the show starts at 6:30pm
