Last week, I had the pleasure of attending Triad Goodwill's Rock the Runway Fashion Show for the second year in a row. This year was extremely special for me because I was asked to be one of the judges. If you've never heard of Rock the Runway, the show includes designers who create original ensembles with clothing donated to Triad Goodwill. Not only do you get to enjoy a fabulous show, but you also get to shop and support a worthy cause. All proceeds from the night’s festivities benefit those who experience barriers in employment and job training within our community. As a donator and frequent shopper of Triad Goodwill, I couldn't wait to see what the designers would create.
When my husband and I arrived to Elm Street Center in Downtown Greensboro, we knew exactly where to go. We headed downstairs where a silent auction was underway and hot hors d'oeuvres and cold drinks were lined up for guests to enjoy. As we walked around, a drawing of Audrey Hepburn in the silent auction really caught my eye. We enjoyed the hors d'oeuvres and the crab dip was definitely my favorite. It wasn't long before I had to head upstairs to join the other judges before the show.

I soon joined Susan Ladd and Lynn Wooten upstairs where we were briefed about the show, where to sit and of course, how judging would take place. We were seated alongside the middle of the runway. It was the perfect spot and not long after we were seated, guests came in and the show got started. The interesting part about this year's show was that all of the designers were women. Girls rock! It was amazing having an up close view of all of the designs as models strutted their stuff down the runway.
God bless & stay fab,
