For the third year in a row, Alaskan Brewing and local businesses have organized the “No Umbrellas” fashion show, showcasing “Real Fashion 4 Real Alaskans.”
The show begins at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26 at Centennial Hall, with doors opening at 6 p.m.
The event is a benefit for SAIL, Southeast Alaska Independent Living, and includes a live runway show of local designs and merchandise, no-host bar by the Rendezvous, a silent auction, music by DJ Manu and a costume contest at halftime.
The show will feature fashions and merchandise from Alaskan Dames, Aurora Projekt, Dana Hernandez designs, Alpaca International, Fairweather Gallery, Juneau Drug, Silverbow Bakery, Juneau Roller Girls, TP Designs, the Alaskan Brewing Company Depot, Skookum Designs, Kodiak Coat Company and more. Andy Kline and Angelina Ahrens will be the MCs.
The first “No Umbrellas” event in 2011 brought in more than $5,000 for Hospice and Home Care of Juneau, and last year’s proceeds -- $8,000 -- went to the Red Cross of Southeast Alaska. Every year Alaskan Brewing staff selects a different nonprofit as the beneficiary of that year’s fundraising efforts, which also include the High Gravity Games Event at Eaglecrest in March.
Tickets for the 21 and over show are $25 in advance at Hearthside Books, the Juneau Arts & Culture Center, and the Alaskan Brewing Company Depot on Franklin Street, or online at jahc.org or alaskanbeer.com. Tickets are $30 at the door.
