TWU students to host dinner and fashion show Nov. 20

10/28/08


DENTON — Students from Texas Woman’s University’s nutrition and food sciences department will team up with students in the fashion and textiles program to host a dinner and fashion show on Thursday, Nov. 20. Event attendees are asked to bring non-perishable food items or gently used clothing, which will be donated to Denton County Friends of the Family.

The event will take place at 6:30 p.m. in Hubbard Hall located on Administration Drive on TWU’s Denton campus. For a map of the Denton campus, visit www.twu.edu/maps.asp. Tickets are $13 each. For more information or to purchase tickets call 940-898-2647 or email KDavis10@twu.edu.

The event is part of a class project for TWU nutrition students in the Quantity Foods and Production class.

“As part of their class requirements, students are required to plan and serve a meal at an event where at least 60 people are in attendance,” said Kathleen Davis, visiting clinical instructor for TWU nutrition and food sciences. “Usually the class is assigned to an event already taking place, but this semester students are planning an event to not only provide a strong learning experience, but also to collect donations that benefit a worthy organization.”

Dixie Allen, program coordinator for TWU’s Project REV — Resources for Ending Violence — will speak about preventing relationship violence at the event. The evening also will include a fashion show featuring more than 40 recycled or reused outfits designed by TWU fashion and textiles students with the two best pieces from the show auctioned to benefit Denton County Friends of the Family.

Denton County Friends of the Family is the sole provider of shelter and free outreach services in Denton County to those who have been affected by relationship violence and/or sexual assault. For more information, visit www.dcfof.org.
