The Assistance League Anaheim will host its 19th annual Fashion Show on Mar. 7 at the Disneyland Hotel Grand Ballroom in Anaheim. The funds raised by ticket sales will benefit various charities in the Orange County area, including Operation School Bell, which provides school uniforms for children, and the Senior Citizen Fellowship, a program designed to keep senior citizens active and healthy.

Clothing items to be modeled at the event will be donated by Humanity, a humanitarian apparel company that has worked to raise money for charitable causes such as Nickelodeon’s The Big Green Help environmental campaign.

“Humanity’s core focus is giving back and creating a more positive environment for people everywhere,” says Humanity co-founder Helena Cho. “Since both [Humanity co-founder] Tammy [Hotsenpiller] and I live in Orange County, we think this is a perfect opportunity for us to get involved, and we are proud to be part of such a noble event.”

The event, which starts at 11:45 a.m., will have both a silent and live auction, and this year’s honoree is Bruno Serato, owner of the Anaheim White House Restaurant.

Assistance League Anaheim is a volunteer organization that helps meet the needs of Anaheim residents through self-funded philanthropic projects. For more information, visit anaheim.assistanceleague.org.
