The second annual IMPACT Fashion Show is presented by First Impressions Image Consulting to benefit Beads of Courage and will take place on Sunday, September 15, 2019 at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa from 2-5pm. Founded by First Impressions owner Gayle Petrillo, the show was created “So every woman no matter her size, shape or age will look and feel confident shopping in their closet because when we look good, we feel great, our confidence shows and we smile. Smiles are contagious and we need more smiles!”

The theme for this year’s event is “Be Your Best You” and includes live entertainment, a buffet, tequila toast, silent auction, raffle prizes, exhibitors, and more. Featured acts include illusionist Michael Howell, the PAC Dance Team, and the Rodeo City Wreckettes. 

The main event will begin at 3 with a runway show featuring the Fall Line from Laura Tanzer; Clothing for every size and every occasion from Steinmart; and 10 Gala pieces from Arturo Valenzuela.

Two very special guests will walk the runway. Lizzie Bell who was a Beads of Courage recipient when she was a going through years of blood transfusions and a life- saving bone marrow donation. She currently attends college and is a strong advocate for Blood Donation Drives and Beads of Courage that helped her stay strong during her recovery.

6 year old Chevelle Ramos, who is a current Beads of Courage recipient and has been off chemo for a year for undergoing treatment for an inoperable tumor, will also model in the show.

Emcees for the event are KVOA Channel 4 News Anchor Priscilla Casper and Chief Meteorologist Matt Brode, with commentary throughout the event by founder Gayle Petrillo.

Tickets for the event are $55 per person.
