Project Cuffway struts in on April 13
Taylor Hanson, Sarah Conly & K.C. Lupp Announced as 2018 Project Cuffway Fashion Show Judge Lineup
Some creative interpretations of Rustic Cuff-inspired fashion at last year's Project Cuffway.
One-of-a-kind fashion show, Project Cuffway 2018 will celebrate the Third Annual event benefiting the National Pancreas Foundation, on April 13, 2018. The volunteer design team is committed fully to producing a fabulously creative fashion show unlike any other — because Rustic Cuff’s Jill Donovan understands fundraising is best when the focus is on the “fun”.
The call to action challenged “designers” to create clothing by using any of the distinctive Rustic Cuff packaging including boxes, paper bags, jewelry pouches and tissue paper. Designs were to be made of at least 50 percent Rustic Cuff packaging and be worn by a model for a runway showcase.
This year’s judge panel includes:
Sarah Conley, the fashion market director for Cosmopolitan and Seventeen Magazines
Taylor Hanson, multi-Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, producer and entrepreneur
K.C. Lupp, actor, entertainer, and radio host, Tulsa’s Mix 96.
“I couldn’t be more excited about this team of judges," says Donovan. “In their respective genres of music, fashion and entertainment, their talent is undeniable and we are so fortunate to have them join forces on this event that is so near and dear to our hearts. It’s going to be such an incredible evening.”
The event is hosted by co-host of Six in the Morning, LeAnne Taylor, and is sure to be an evening of fun and creativity.
“One of the best things about our Rustic Cuff family is they love to give back. In the first two years, this event has raised more than $330,000 for the National Pancreas Foundation,” says Donovan. “It is only possible because of our Rustic Cuff community and generous support of some amazing sponsors.”
Last year’s event raised more than $210,000 for the National Pancreas Foundation, creating approximately 10% of the foundation’s annual budget.
Project Cuffway will be held on Friday, April 13th, 2018 in the Grand Ballroom at the Cox Business Center, 100 Civic Center in downtown Tulsa.
Other event highlights include a silent auction, cuff pull, and a cocktail hour for sponsors and VIP’s. For information about sponsorship opportunities, email PCWSponsorships@rusticcuff.com.
