In 2017, Madison Reading Project launched Read(y) to Wear,
a paper inspired benefit fashion show which brings together lovers of reading and fashion to support the literacy needs of kids, families and educators.
How it works:
Artist, corporate, nonprofit, and student teams are allowed two (2) designs in the show.
Models take a turn on the catwalk and designs are voted on by a panel of local celebrity judges. Teams compete for the title of Read(y) to Wear (Best) Design and the Best Use of Paper.
In addition to the fashion show, attendees can mingle and enjoy fun activities before the models walk including a raffle, wine pull, dessert station, cash bar and a paper craft station.
Funds raised at Read(y) to Wear support the MRP program fund the provides much needed staff, books and supplies that allow us to provide high quality services.
