‘Model’ Students Help Raise Money for The Brides Project
On January 15 seven Greenhills girls donated their time to be models at a bridal gown fashion show that benefited the Cancer Support Community (CSC) of Greater Ann Arbor (the recipient of the funds earned by the bagel sales each Thursday at school).
In September, the CSC opened The Brides Project, the first non-profit bridal salon in America. Through The Brides Project, once-worn gowns donated by brides or unsold gowns donated by bridal shops are made available for purchase to brides-to-be at a considerable savings. All profits from the sale of the gowns go to the CSC to support programs and services for people touched by cancer.
“It was not only fun to wear the dresses,” says senior Marissa Thompson, “but also to be a part of an event that raised money for such a great cause.”
Greenhills students who participated in the fashion show included Kamya Jagadish ’12, Gabi Kaplan ’12, Sarah Lazarsfeld ’12, Jackie Oestreich ’13, Lauren Satterwhite ’12, and Sabrina ’14 and Marissa Thompson ’12.
