When we decided to do the Fashion Show after many years of not having one,  we want people to recognize Rio West Mall as a place to be for events and that we are a part of the community so we decided that the Fashion Show would also be a great opportunity to raise money for a non-profit organization in McKinley County.

We chose the John Harlin Community Pantry because by helping them, we would be helping 16 plus organizations that they provide food to on a daily basis.

Our “What’s In the Bag” Fundraiser raised a total of $2,256.00 for the pantry and on top of that, we had an awesome Fashion Show Sept. 12.
