Benefitting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities
Fort Myers – Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida (SWFL) invites spectators to the inaugural Pathways to Opportunity’s Summer Nights of Opportunity Fashion and Talent Show at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center on Saturday, July 22nd from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Goodwill SWFL’s Pathways to Opportunity Program is an adult training program for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The five-day-a-week program features classes focused on breaking limitations by teaching crucial life skills such as financial literacy, digital skills, self-advocacy, cooking, navigating public transit, and more while having fun!
About 40 participants will be involved in the event, making up five classes. Each class receives $100 to select and purchase merchandise from Goodwill in order to dress themselves, or their models for the runway.
“Our participants are excited to share their talents with you at our Fashion and Talent Showcase,” states Goodwill Event Coordinator, Rachel Stanborough. “Don’t miss your opportunity to see them strut their stuff on a runway, or blow you away with their amazing talents!”
All proceeds support increased participant community and event outings, program expansions and supplies for hands on training and learning. Sponsorship packages are available.
Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida is committed to serving people with disabilities and disadvantages by offering life-changing opportunities to achieve independence. For more information on how Goodwill SWFL positively impacts the community, visit www.Goodwillswfl.org
