The teachers and students of Schreiber High School are organizing a charity fashion show - Fi(Red) Up For Fashion - to raise money for The Global Fund, an organization created in 2002 to help provide education, treatment, and support to the millions of people suffering from AIDS, HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria in Africa. The magnitude and spread of these epidemics are alarming and children often suffer the greatest impact. The show will be presented on Thursday, April 12. It will begin at 6:30 p.m. with food and music in the Schreiber lobby. At 7 p.m., the fashion show will present Channel 12's sportscaster, Michael Coleman, who will be the master of ceremonies for the fashion show.
The high school volunteers want to educate others in the school and community about these epidemics and to make all of our students more aware of how the entire community can help. All of the money raised on April 12 will be sent directly to the United Nations Foundation. An outstanding 94 cents of every dollar that is donated will go directly to support UN programs designed to help people suffering from these epidemics and will be used in part for the training of teachers in AIDS prevention education as well as activities to raise awareness.
Dozens of students are helping to organize this event under the direction of French teacher Jeannine Montusi and French and Spanish teacher Chérie Delio and parent and runway model Lauree Volpe. They are seeking donations of raffle prizes and checks made out to the United Nations Foundation as well as participation in the event.
