Posted by

DTBDBANNEROGAt 6 p.m. on June 29th, a community engagement event taking place at the Garden Club in St. Petersburg will prove that living free from unsafe substances is always in style.

LiveFree! Coalition, a local alliance promoting awareness about the harmful effects of underage drinking, binge drinking, prescription drug abuse, marijuana/synthetic use and other substance abuse among youth and young adults, in partnership with Power Broker Magazine, the most read magazine targeting African Americans on Florida’s west coast, will host the Dare to Be Different Take 1 Fashion show.

Modeling in the show will be 12 youth and adults who serve as LiveFree! club members and coalition key leaders. They will premiere the season’s latest designer attire for men, women and teens including designs and accessories in jungle, primary color and pastel prints with exclusive pieces from the Adam collection and by other Bay Area designers.

Doors open at 6 p.m., with a reception until 7 p.m. The show begins promptly at 7 p.m. Entrance is free. Arrive early for best seating.

“A big part of prevention is feeling beautiful inside and out and I am looking forward to a great show where our youth leaders can take center stage and be recognized for the great work they are doing in our communities,” said LiveFree! Executive Director Jackie Griffin. “A fashion show seemed like the perfect fit since fashion, like our organization, is all about celebrating differences and making a statement. We are so pleased to partner with Power Broker Magazine for this event.”

“At Power Broker we aim to connect, engage and inspire and that is just what these models do day in and day out,” said Power Broker Publisher Gypsy Gallardo. “We are looking forward to a great show and community event.”
