Lilli Beck recently contacted Off the Duck about a most worthy cause - a fundraiser for Central High School's Best Buddies chapter. Best Buddies is an organization that works to pair students with intellectual and developmental disabilities with their peers who do not have disabilities in order to form lasting friendships.
As Central's Best Buddies vice president, Beck has been working with Dawn Gray of Lace and Company Bridal to put on a Prom Peek-a-Boo Fashion Show to raise funds for the chapter.
Gray told us, "While I am thrilled for our dresses to be shown at this event, it's even better to see the students of our community get involved, from the planning to the modeling, to raise money for such a worthy cause."
The fashion show will feature students from most Maury County schools, both public and private.
The date of the event is the afternoon ofJanuary 10th, 2016 at 2 p.m.It will be held at Westbury Housein downtown Columbia on the Square.Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at Lace and Co. Bridal(112 West 7th) or at Beck Dental Care (1603 Rosewood Drive).
Beck says, "We expect it to be a widely supported community event. The fundraiser will be strictly nonprofit, with all proceeds going to the Central High School Best Buddies chapter."
So grab your best buddy and come on out this Sunday for an afternoon of fun and fashion!
