Fifth Annual Cruising The Catwalk Fashion Show Fundraiser
The Sacramento State Alumni Center was bursting with energy and cheers as over 230 people in the Transportation industry gathered to support our 19 models who "sashayed" down the catwalk on August 31st! (Yes, it was a real catwalk!) WTS Sacramento's 5th Annual Fashion Show Fundraiser was another huge success to raise money to support our scholarships for young women pursuing degrees in transportation related fields. In fact, this year we are increasing our scholarship amount and will be awarding $15,000 in scholarship checks at our Annual Dinner on January 31st!During the evening, over 35 silent auction items were bid upon for over $4,000 raised towards our scholarships, including Stella and Dot jewelry and accessories, Giants tickets, wine baskets, a handmade cutting board and a handmade cornhole set, ski lift passes, a hiking gear basket, a Fitbit, and many more fun items! Also prior to the main event was a raffle to win some $50 gift cards, Kings shirts, wine, and even a one-night stay at the Atlantis Resort and Casino!
