Choose To Shine Down Syndrome Fashion Show

Choose To Shine Down Syndrome Fashion Show

Sunday, April 14, 2019

** Please note that, unlike previous Choose to Shine Fashion Shows, CIDSO has been notified that the show’s producers have chosen other organizations to receive proceeds from this event, with some portion yet to be determined donated to CIDSO for programming/funding opportunities, which includes reimbursement for speech and hearing services at ISU for our members. CIDSO is no longer the only beneficiary of this Down Syndrome Fashion Show. **

Dear CIDSO Members:

Due to the huge success of the “Choose to Shine” Down Syndrome Fashion Show last spring, the Illinois State University Speech Pathology majors have decided to put on a fashion show this year too! Here is where we need your help; we need models to “shine” down the runway!

WHO: We are looking for individuals with Down syndrome to be models. All ages are accepted.

WHEN: The “Choose to Shine” Down Syndrome Fashion Show will be held on Sunday, April 14th at 1:00pm. There will be a dress rehearsal prior to the show time (the exact time is to be determined).

WHERE: The fashion show will be held at the Illinois State University Bone Student Center.

WHAT: If you are interested in being a model, please fill out the About Me questionnaire and contact Paola at by April 1st.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact Paola or Kim Adelman

 Thank you for your consideration to participate!
