Thanks to the more than 100 people who attended our third-annual ‘Fashion for Action’ fundraising event held at Hardage-Giddens St. Johns on June 8th — and the fabulous local models who ‘rocked the runway’ with fashions from the Betty Griffin Thrift Shoppes to make this year’s fundraiser a great success!

All models were local volunteers, featuring the community’s influential women, men, and children, who walked the runway wearing some unique finds from our thrift shoppes.

Also, a special thanks to our celebrity emcee: Melanie Lawson with WJXT Channel 4 — The Local Station (it was Melanie’s second time to serve as our emcee!) and our great sponsors for this years event!
