Winter fashion for women will be spotlighted at the CATO-Cottey Fashion Show and Food Drive, in conjunction with The Shoe Department and Platinum Entertainment, on Sunday, November 10, in the Missouri Recital Hall of the Haidee and Allen Wild Center for the Arts. Doors will open at 1:45 p.m. and the fashion show will begin at 2 p.m. 

The fashion show will highlight 32 different winter outfits. Thirteen Cottey students and three Nevada Middle School students will model stylish winter clothing provided by CATO as well as winter shoes and boots from The Shoe Department.

During intermission, the diversity program on campus will provide rhythmic drumming performed by international students dressed in the styles of their culture. 

Attendance is open to the community and admission to the fashion show will be one non-perishable food item per person. All food items collected will be donated to Community Outreach for distribution in the area. Monica Hernandez, community service student assistant on the Cottey campus, will spearhead the food drive.

Chaymaa Bakhalek, volunteer management intern at Cottey is coordinating the event as part of her internship responsibilities on campus. Cottey student Caitlin Reed will provide the lighting, and sound will be provided by Platinum Entertainment.

The Center for the Arts is on the northeast corner of Austin and Tower streets in Nevada, Missouri.
