The Big Sister Association of Greater Boston held its annual fashion show at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel, to raise money for the organization.
Project Role Model featured young girls and their mentors walking down an illuminated runway with cameras capturing their confidence, friendship and unique bond.
The mission of the fashion show was to encourage girls to embrace who they are and be confident in themselves.
Every girl walked down the runway with a different style, but they all ended with the same positive message, embracing and exuding their personality.
Local celebrities , like New England Patriots player Jerod Mayo, Massachusetts' First Lady Lauren Baker and other contributors of the event, ripped the runway while having fun.
The event included a wine and cheese hour with a grand seashell photo booth before the fashion show then an auction afterwards.
The event raised more than $200,000 for Big Sister Boston’s mentoring and enrichment programs.
