This year’s Calhoun High School Senior Experience class presented their 10th annual Fashion Show for charity, raising more than $10,000 for Project Safe Motherhood.

This would not have been possible without Sanford H. Calhoun’s own, Hadi Aziz, a junior, who introduced his uncle’s brave cause, Project Safe Motherhood, to the class.

“They instantly felt a connection to the organization and wanted to offer a helping hand,” said Principal Nicole Hollings.  

Students modeled clothing from local stores, Alta Moda by Josephine, Esquire Tuxedos, InMotion and Joelle Jay. Calhoun staff members modeled clothing from Saks Off Fifth Avenue. For three months, the 2016 Fashion Show interns, Ally Reilly, Kelly Grenham and Sophia Navas, diligently planned and coordinated the seamless night.

The evening is part of the Senior Experience, which offers alternative learning opportunities to graduating students towards the end of their senior year.

Project Safe Motherhood is a non-governmental organization based in Tanzania that assists the government in empowering susceptible communities to fight the cycle of poverty, abuse and exploitation. The organization also helps mothers give birth in a clean and safe setting and gives mothers access to medical care required during pregnancy.
