High Heels for High Hopes models on My Party Bus
March for Babies is America’s oldest walking event, but when it comes time to get moving, some women would rather wear stilettos than walking shoes.
Fourteen business women from Springfield will do their walking for babies in Oregon’s first High Heels for High Hopes event, a fashion show benefiting March of Dimes on February 27th. The women will walk the cat walk wearing one of three themed looks: “a night out on the town,” “just want to have fun,” or “dress for success.”
Each model has a goal of raising at least $2,000 to help babies be born healthy.
To raise some money before the big event, some of the models took the My Party Bus to attend a Eugene Women Business Leaders networking event, then went to The Bridge, followed by Hop Valley. They collected over $1,000 in cash donations and were the talk of Eugene Springfield.
So far the ladies have raised over $12,500 and have just one week to reach their goal before the event. Donations can be made on the models’ behalf to March of Dimes here: http://bit.ly/WTXjfr. Auction items will also be at the event, each relative to one of the model’s three looks.
High Heels for High Hopes is Wednesday, February 27th at the Kendall Toyota Showroom (373 Goodpasture Island Rd in Eugene). Beverages and appetizers will be served starting at 6:00 pm prior to the runway show beginning at 7:00 pm. General admission tickets (just 20 left!) can be purchased for this event through Aimee Corey at March of Dimes; VIP tickets sold out the first week of sales.
Funds raised by this event will benefit the Lane County March for Babies, which helps support prenatal wellness programs, research grants, neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) family support programs and advocacy efforts for stronger, healthier babies.
