Make a Wish Foundation will be supporting Fossil Ridge High School’s annual Prom Fashion show for Rebekah, a 16 year-old from Johnstown, Colorado who has been struggling with cystic fibrosis. DECA leadership, Lisa Landwehr, Erica Lewis, and Lindsey Swanson are leading the event. The club will be fundraising to help Rebekah fulfill her wish to watch one of  her favorite Broadway musicals, Sweeny Todd. JC Penney, Sephora, Men’s Warehouse, and Cira will be sponsoring the show, providing models with apparel and professional makeup.

To bring more awareness for the show, DECA members have dedicated a “Wish Week” leading up to the event, on March 23. DECA announced the fashion show to students at the basketball game to help create student interest. The audience also partook in a “miracle minute,” donating change in hopes of sending Rebekah to New York. “It’s not only for a good cause,” stated Landwehr “it’s unifies the community and school.”
Applications for modeling candidates are posted on DECA’s twitter account @psdwishevent, and may also be accessible by clicking on this link.

    I liked this article a lot. It was quick to get to the point and did not add any fluff to the story. The story it self was also heart warming.

    I really like how you included all of the important information and gave details about Rebekah, I think that really adds to the article.

    The date should probably be in the beginning of the article, and there could be more information about the girl we are doing the Prom Fashion show for. Otherwise, good article! Its a good cause to bring awareness to

    This was a great article–short and to the point, but well organized and informative. I think the date should be at the beginning because it is a crucial detail that readers should take note of going into the rest of the article, but other than that, the writing and smooth and flows really well.
