Rotaract Jumeirah brings together fashion designers to raise funds for Senses Residential Care Home for Children

United Arab Emirates: Monday, May 02 - 2011 @ 15:08

All the costs associated with Fashion my Community, will be covered by sponsorship and all proceeds will go directly to The Senses Residential Care Home for Children with Special Needs. All funds will purchase a hydrotherapy machine which is desperately needed by the school to treat 80 per cent of the children who have moderate to severe physical disabilities there. The home is the first non-profit making, specialized residential centre for children in Dubai offering unparalleled care for kids with special needs.

Dubai is a city with lots of talented fashion designers, many of whom grew up here and are just starting off. However those trying to get a foot hold in the industry often lack a platform on which to showcase their creativity. That’s where the Fashion My Community initiative comes in.
This year we’ve, chosen to put our time and efforts into raising money for a relatively small but vital organisation called The Senses Residential Care Home for Children with Special Needs.

Fashion my Community promises to be a spectacular evening with a grand lineup. The fashion show will be followed by a silent auction featuring the designer pieces on show. There will also be live music and a raffle draw with fantastic prizes. It will be a ticketed event, with tickets costing Dhs150 sold on Time Out online from the 1st May. 2011.

Fashion My Community is the brainchild of the Rotaract Club, Jumeirah – a group of young Dubai-based professionals, who have organized charity events with a community focus, in the UAE.

“The Senses Care Home is very thankful to the Rotaract Club of Jumeirah for their support and we encourage more young volunteers to give back to the community in whatever way they can,” said Dr. Lina.M.Owies.
