On May 12, Big Sister Boston returned to the runway at the Fairmont Copley Plaza for our first in-person event since 2019. The Project Role Model fashion show shone a spotlight on the power of role models and mentoring relationships. Notable Bostonians and Big and Little Sisters walked the runway in styles from Angelica Timas, Kreyol, Laletty & Co., lalla bee, and SALMAGUNDI. Emcee, Lisa Hughes of WBZ-TV/CBS Boston, ran the show while DJ Maverik, official DJ of the Boston Red Sox, kept the soundtrack spinning.
