The event focuses on giving back in the form of scholarships. Each year, the Hispanic Alumni Association hosts a fashion show to raise money for students in need of financial help, and starting Friday, January 21, tickets for the fundraising show will go on sale at noon. This year’s goal is to raise $ 15,000 in scholarships.
“We are really excited to be giving back a lot this year, especially coming out of such a difficult year. Many are struggling financially to pay for college,” said Veronica Olivarez, member of the UH Hispanic Alum Association and co-chair of the fashion show.
“The money raised goes to scholarships and our organization is led by volunteers, so no one on our board gets paid. We don’t really have overheads,” said Maria Cavanaugh, another alum member and co-chair of the association. fashion show.
People can give back to students by buying tickets to the fashion show. If you are unable to attend, you can make a $ 1,000 Scarlet donation, which will go directly to a student who receives a scholarship. You can also buy tickets for the show and have them donate to a student to attend. Another way to donate is to simply make any cash donation of your choice.
