Smart bets: Color Me Goodwill

BET Goodwill

The third annual Color Me Goodwill Fashion Show will support local designers, Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina and the Asheville Humane Society. Every year, six regional designers are assigned a color and given $125 to spend at local Goodwill retail stores. They then turn the materials they buy into six up-cycled designs in the assigned color. The fashion show, which garnered 450 attendees last year, offers exposure for local artists, as well as cash prizes for the winner and runner-up. This year’s event will also feature local pups from the Humane Society strutting the runway as judges tabulate the scores. The Orange Peel hosts Color Me Goodwill on Friday, April 28, at 6 p.m. $15. colormegoodwill.org. Photo courtesy of Goodwill
