Epilepsy Charity Fashion Show

On Friday, May 24th, the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale presented a charity fashion show to help raise money for the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida. It was a family event that took place in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea in front of the Village Pump and Grill and a few of the surrounding streets There was entertainment for the whole family, which included a live band, food, drinks, auctions and, of course, a fashion show. All of the proceeds that were raised from the auction went to the Epilepsy charity; we received a total of $800 that night.
