    This year SHS Fashion for the Cure raised $59,000 dollars for The Dragonfly Foundation. All this money is in support of families whose kids are battling cancer. FFTC is an annual event that brings together our entire Sycamore community in appreciating the artistry and skill of its students, all while supporting a good cause. It is one of a kind and finds its way into peoples lives year after year. A week after the 2020 fashion show COVID-19 took hold and FFTC was unfortunately not able to be held in 2021. However, this setback only further motivated the committee, designers, volunteers, and others this year to work hard to come out with a bang for the 2022 show. So, that is exactly what happened. 

   Featured are some notable designers and their collections from the show on February 18, 2022.

LEADING LADY. Her second leading role in her SHS theatre career, junior Payton Hines played the quirky and romantic Juliet, her friendship with Romeo actor Jake Jervis coming in handy as they told a tale of love, woe, and unexpected happiness. Hines has expressed her sadness about how the arts have been severely disadvantaged during the pandemic, but is thrilled to be back on stage. “We are all just so extremely excited to be performing again with the energy of the audience, the lights, and the physical community for being together. While this year looks different and we have faced a new set of challenges, we are just so grateful to be back doing what we love,” Hines said.

MORGAN. I cut my hair because last year, my childhood friend Patrick Battle lost his life to cancer. He was 17 years old with so many unfulfilled dreams and unlived adventures. Seeing him fight and miss out on life broke my heart...a battle that is all too common for many other pediatric cancer patients. Because of him, I was inspired to give back. I believe that no child or family should go through the painful war of cancer and so I felt like I could help by donating my hair.

Downtown Cincy is filled with fun. The John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge is perfect for a relaxing walk and a great opportunity for some amazing shots of Cincinnati’s skyline. Along with the attractions, there are also many restaurants, ranging from inexpensive to very fancy dining. Additionally, the historical vibe of the area is very unique and special. Your relatives will really enjoy all that downtown has to offer.
