2:25 PM: If you weren’t at last night’s STYLE ’17 fashion-show fundraiser for Northwest Hope and Healing, that video will give you a sense of what it was like, as the West Seattleite-founded-and-led nonprofit raised $205,000 to help cancer patients with the everyday expenses that unfortunately don’t stop for those who are in the fight of their lives. That’s West Seattleite Kristina Dahl, NWHH executive director, at the start of the video, which was produced by West Seattleite Edgar Riebe of Captive Eye Media. The models are all survivors, and as you can see in the clips, they have a lot of fun.
This was the 15th year for STYLE, held for the first time at Block41 in Belltown; NWHH also raises money with the annual summertime Alki Beach 5K – watch here for info on this year’s event soon – and in the meantime, you can help NWHH any time by going here.
5:05 PM UPDATE: NWHH’s Dahl just told us the tally is now past $225,000: “We could not have done it without the support of our incredible community, and we are grateful to every single attendee, donor, volunteer â€¦ and of course our amazing models.”
