The 11th annual Fashion for the Cure will be hosted on February 25 at 7:30 p.m in the auditorium.

The program is entirely student-run, with aid from adviser Deborah Klemt.

During the show, student models walk a runway, wearing outfits from local businesses to raise money for the Dragonfly Foundation, a local nonprofit organization that raises money to provide comfort and joy to children receiving bone marrow transplants or chemotherapy at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

“The Dragonfly Foundation provides distractions from the emotional, physical, and financial toll of cancer and bone marrow transplants, as well as the post-traumatic stress associated with the trauma of diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.

“We also work to establish connections and community at a time when patients, siblings, and caregivers feel the most alone and isolated,” the foundation said in its mission statement.

Reserved seating tickets can be purchased at, while general admission tickets can be purchased through Klemt.
