Reasonably Price Fashion for a Good Cause

The sixth annual Goodwill Runway Show took place Thursday April 23 at the Body Zone Sports Complex. The nonprofit organization provides education, training, and support for people with disabilities and economic hardships. The sales and proceeds from the 41+ Goodwill Stores and donation centers across Central and Southeast Pennsylvania provide programs and services to enrich the community members lives.

Each year a variety of local businesses generously donate their products and services for the event. This year guests nibbled on mouth-watering appetizers and drinks from local restaurants while browsing the silent auction tables.
