Boston celebs, corporate and philanthropic leaders, and of course, Big and Little Sisters, dazzled on last night’s Project Role Model runway! Nearly 350 guests came out to catch a sneak peek of spring fashions from Alice Walk, Sara Campbell, Eileen Fisher, and the shops at The Street in Chestnut Hill. Michael DePaulo wowed the crowd with his gowns and couture designs accompanied by jewels from Gumuchian. 

Fan favorite, Lisa Hughes of WBZ-TV, emceed the show with flair after First Lady of Massachusetts, Lauren Baker, gave a warm welcome. WBZ-TV’s Steve Burton tag-teamed the live auction with guest model and retired New England Patriots player, Jerod Mayo. The event then culminated with an impromptu dance party on the runway!

Big thanks to our models, sponsors, host committee, event chairs, and guests for coming out last night in support of Greater Boston’s girls! Together we have raised nearly $200,000.
