To Benefit Zev Wolff Fund:FASHIONABLE AND MODEST: LONG ISLAND NCSY TO PRESENT PROJECT FRUMWAY, MARCH 31 IN LAWRENCE;
WOMEN INVITED TO SUBMIT THEIR OWN DESIGNS
Nothing to wear? Tired of the same old styles? Ever wanted to feel both fashionable and modest? Here’s your chance!
The Orthodox Union’s Long Island Region of NCSY, in conjunction with the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway, Hebrew Academy of Nassau County and Stella K. Abraham High School, will present Project Frumway, a community-wide fashion event for women only, and an exciting contest opportunity to create one’s own designs and have them featured at the event.
The fashion show will take place Monday, March 31, 2008 from 7:30 to 10:00 PM at Congregation Beth Sholom in Lawrence.
Proceeds will go in part to benefit the Zev Wolff Fund, which was set up to raise money for a five-year old boy from Cedarhurst, who is stricken with cancer and needs an innovative procedure that costs over three million dollars. For more information visit www.zevsfund.org.
Project Frumway is sponsored by Be Precious, a brand new fashion line exclusively featuring modest clothing, whose spring collection will be shown at the event. Be Precious hopes to actively engage the women of the Five Towns and other communities in the world of fashion by allowing everyone to become a designer. Three designs will be chosen to be incorporated into the new spring collection and featured in the fashion show.
“NCSY gave so much to me, and continues to give to others, I thought that this is the one small way I can begin to give back,” declared Josh Ligett, President of Be Precious.
Girls and women of all ages may submit their own unique outfit designs to Long Island NCSY or to representatives at HAFTR, HANC and SKA. Rules and regulations for submitting entries can be found on www.lincsy.com.
In addition, the event will include a boutique featuring local vendors.
According to Rina Emerson, Associate Director of Long Island NCSY, “Project Frumway represents to women of all ages that you can dress with Torah values in modern times, without having to compromise either way.”
“We are very grateful to Sherri Seidenfeld and Elissa Schertz, staff members of Long Island NCSY, for putting the show together,” she said.
Sponsorship opportunities are available. Pricing for ads in the Project Frumway catalog are $100 for a half page, and $175 for a full page.
