During Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Yeshiva University High School for Girls, “Pink” activities have been brightening up their fall calendar. To raise money for Sharsheret, an organization that provides support to individuals throughout the Jewish community who are affected by breast cancer, students participated in “Mani for the Cure.” In addition, last Thursday was Central’s Positively Pink fashion design show, which was an opportunity for students to take a leadership role in running this event and lend their talents by designing outfits for a worthy cause. This special fundraising event for Sharsheret facilitates students’ creativity, all while fostering positive self-image. Says Student Activities Coordinator Mrs. Shani Malitzky, this program “poses the opportunity to celebrate fashion in all shapes and sizes, styles, and forms…It is our hope that through this creative process, our students will grow in their sense of their own beauty and self-confidence.” Individually or in teams, participants submitted ensemble ideas according to stylistic specifications. Six lucky style teams then met with professional stylist Mrs. Frumee Taubenfeld to perfect their designs. The fashion show also featured a video montage of the designers’ experiences and progress. It was an amazing event for an amazing cause.
