Fundraiser: Fashion Speaks: Service in Style at Princeton
Fashion week is coming to Princeton. Think runways, heels, killer suits and cutting-edge fashion. Run by Princeton students, the fashion show is more than beautiful clothes and beautiful people — all of the proceeds from the event go to Eden Autism Services. Eden, a New Jersey nonprofit, was founded to improve the lives of children and adults with autism and those of their families. The event will also feature musical performances, a dance performance by diSiac Dance Company and a silent auction.
Friday, 10:30 p.m.
Saturday, 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

Directed by company founder Eamon Foley ’15, the show features a host of talented actors taking on the challenge of bringing this dark tale to life. The talent, the gutsy setting and the harrowing tale are sure to send shivers down your spine in the best way possible!
