Fashion Show: March 31, 6pm

Exhibit Dates:
April 1st - April 19th



   

The Wearable Art Fashion Show will feature out of this world and over the top fashion created by various artists and is a fundraiser for the Cleveland County Arts Council and the Cleveland Rutherford Kidney Foundation. This runway show will be a first for Cleveland County and a can't miss ticketed event with Hors d'oeuvres, champagne and more! Seating limited.

Ticket sales will benefit both organizations. Most artwork will remain on exhibit in the gallery through April 19.

 

March is National Kidney Month, a time for raising awareness about kidney health and disease and the importance of prevention and early detection. Kidney disease is the 9th leading cause of death in the United States. More than 26 million Americans have kidney disease, and most don’t know it. There are over 95,000 people waiting for kidney transplants. 

 

The Cleveland Rutherford Kidney Association’s (CRKA) main objective is to identify and help meet the needs of kidney disease patients in Cleveland and Rutherford Counties. The CRKA provides many services such as: transportation, medication and grocery assistance, stress management counseling, education, advocacy, referral services, post-transplant support, volunteer training, and much more.

 

The Arts Council and CRKA hope that this unique fashion show and exhibit will draw awareness to kidney disease and the importance of good health as well as opportunities for living organ donations.
