Little Red Dress a big event on campus

The Little Red Dress cat-walked its way to St. Kate’s on Sat., Feb 27. It was a semi-formal event where people wore black, red or white to support heart disease research.

Heart disease is the number-one cause of death for women, so this was a great event for St. Kate’s to host! During the course of the evening, there was a fashion show featuring dresses made by students and faculty in the Fashion department, a guest speaker who shared her story of living with a heart condition and a silent auction to raise money.

The auction featured dresses from the fashion show, as well as donations from local businesses and other clubs on campus. There was also time for people to mingle and eat snacks, as well as take part in activities presented by other St. Kate’s clubs. The total amount of money that The Little Red Dress raised is not calculated yet, but the event had huge success in raising awareness while allowing everyone to have a good time!
