Killeen, TX– Students at Texas State University are organizing a Remembrance Fashion Show benefitting the American Widow Project. The Fashion Show will be at the Killeen Civic & Conference Center on Friday, March 21. The doors will open at 6:30pm and the show starts at 7:30pm.
Texas State Alumna, Taryn Davis, was 21 when she created the project after her husband was killed in Afghanistan. Davis’s vision, efforts and inspiration have earned her recognition as one of CNN’s Heroes and international news coverage.
“This event not only brings people together, but it celebrates, recognizes and salutes the military men that have been left behind,” Davis said.
Military wives and widows will be saluted as the runway models for the event. They will wear the latest fashions from Dillard’s.
General admission tickets are $10 and VIP tickets are $15. A VIP ticket includes reserved seating in the first two rows and an exclusive goodie bag. Each ticket provides an evening of dinner, a silent auction and a live music performance. Doug Currin, KCEN nightly news anchor, will be the MC for the event. Alcoholic beverages and food are available for purchase.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Survivor Outreach Services department of Fort Hood. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit our Facebook Event Page
