Meadowdale High School is hosting another fashion show and dress sale fundraiser on Friday, Feb. 7 with the goal of helping to fund Feb. 12 heart screenings at the high school. Both events are in memory of 16-year-old Meadowdale student Matthew Truax, who died of an undiagnosed heart condition last September.
Nearly $5,000 was raised at the Jan. 18 Take This Dress to Heart event and organizers are hoping to raise another $5,000 at Feb. 7.
More than 300 dresses will be for sale from 4-6 p.m., followed by a magic show from 6-8 p.m. featuring Joe “Magic Man” Martinek ($5 donation). There will also be a bake sale.
Volunteers are needed to help with a variety of tasks for both the Feb. 7 and 12 events, and organizers are also looking for 10 dress racks.
