We've been hard at work on this event for months now and this week, we get to see all of our hard work come to fruition.

This Friday night, 17 models and designers will feature their casual and formal creations made out of garbage bags and duct tape on the runway (grand staircase) at Moonrise Hotel! Some of the creations we've seen are absolutely awe-inspiring - from trash bag wedding dresses to mermaid-inspired creations.

These models and designers have been hard at work for the fun of it - and also because they believe in the cause - Salvation Army homeless shelters in the St. Louis region. Check out this blog from model Andreea Cojocariu for more on why she's so supportive of this event and The Salvation Army in Missouri.

This week only there are several online specials for discounted tickets, but if you have it in your budget to purchase at full price, remember that the proceeds go to support our homeless shelters in O'Fallon, Alton and St. Louis. Come out and enjoy an amazing show, entertainment from Rob Cruse and DJ Epic and delicious eats from Eclipse Restaurant.

This event was made possible by incredible sponsors and partners such as Hardees, Moonrise Hotel, Eclipse Restaurant, Cruse Entertainment, Yelp and Patch.com.

Special room packages are available at the Moonrise Hotel for attendees. Their "Get a Night, Give A Night" promotion will donate $53 from your stay to The Salvation Army's shelter program. Book now, they're going fast!
