Bayanihan Student Organization 10th Annual Fall Fashion Show

Saturday, December 9, 2006 at 7 p.m., Alumni Memorial Union

Think of it as fashion for a good cause. The Bayanihan Student Organization's

fall fashion show is entitled Vintage, and it marks the 10-year anniversary of

this popular fund-raiser. For the last decade, the fall fashion show has served as

a symbol of Marquette's diversity and commitment to service.

The Bayanihan Student Organization works to promote, educate and celebrate

the Filipino culture and spirit. This year, the group is raising money for Gawad

Kalinga, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to rebuilding and restoring

communities in the Luzon region of the Philippines, which have been devastated

by natural disaster and poverty. The goal is to raise $50,000 to help rebuild an

entire village that could house hundreds of families, and the group hopes to

name the village in honor of Marquette. Admission is $8.
