This year the show was elevated because of the quality and vision brought by 46 Central Oregon designers (23 of which were students from 9 schools including Highland, Amity, Tumalo Community School, REALMS, Cascade, High Desert, Bend High, Mtn. View, and Summit). We couldn’t have imagined the amount of support from the community with 21 Sponsors donating essential cash, beverages & services, 9 Business Challenge submission, 11 local vendors who also gave items to the silent auction, and 7 other silent auction contributing businesses. Finally our 60+ dedicated volunteers from organizers, models, clean-up crew and everything in between
With this fundraiser, our students will experience the art and skill of the design and printing processes with our new printing press and photo emulsion screen-printing equipment. They will deepen their sewing and design process with body forms, and continue to have opportunities outside the classroom to strengthen their learning and local community connections.
On behalf of the entire REALMS faculty, board of directors, and students, thank you again for your generosity and support.
