Support the restoration of Women Identities at the Runway to Empowerment


Foreva Fancy Boutique has teamed up with Shaping Healthy Identities through Nurturing and Empowerment (SHINE) and On Eagle Wings Ministries (OEWM) to organize a charity fashion show on Sunday, May 24th. Titled ‘Runway to Empowerment’, the show will be held at the Angel Nuñez Auditorium starting at 8PM and aims to raise funds for the construction of an OEWM/SHINE center and home for women/girls that have been sexually, mentally or physically exploited. But the fashion show is two-fold, as it will also be celebrating the first installation of the SHINE program and the 14 young ladies that took part in it.20 Road Empowerment Fashion Show
“I am so excited for Runway to Empowerment. It will be a show like no other. Foreva Fancy has organized a great show with lots surprises and entertainment. But I think the most important is that the girls that participated in the SHINE program will get their debut in modeling. None of them have ever participated in a fashion show and they are all looking forward to this opportunity,” said Miss San Pedro and SHINE Founder Michelle Nuñez.
The SHINE girls will strut the stage along with Foreva Fancy’s models in what promises to be an unforgettable show! Tickets are now on sale, starting at $20 in advance or $25 on event day for rows one and two, and $15 for adults or $5 for children for rows three to six. Bleacher seating is free of cost. “This is one of the biggest shows Foreva Fancy has organized. We hope that Runway to Empowerment brings love and hope to our women of Belize. The fashion show will also showcase the best of spring and summer apparel. We encourage everyone to come out for this significant event. SHINE program is based on self-worth and self-esteem and this fashion show will do marvelous for the young ladies that took the course. I hope that this event spreads awareness and also that the girls have fun taking part in it,” said Nuñez.
Tickets can be bought at Foreva Fancy Boutique on Coconut Drive or through Michelle Nuñez by calling 623-3372 or 630-2560, or emailing [email protected].
