WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The Communities In Schools Fashion Show returned for its fifth year to raise money for students at risk in New Hanover and Pender Counties. Guests gathered to watch the show at the Landfall Country Club on May 17.
The show featured nearly two dozen community leaders wearing fashions from local boutiques. The goal? Raise $30,000 to benefit local students in need.
“By making a front-end investment in students who are most likely to leave school without graduating, CIS increases opportunities for success,” writes CIS in a release. During the last school year, 99% of case-managed students stayed in school, and 89% improved academically.
