What color is GOOD?

You’ll find out at this fun and fast-paced event held at Downtown Asheville’s premiere space…The Venue.

Six designers have combed through Goodwill stores for items in assigned colors to up-cycle into their own creative designs. More than 25 professional models will walk the runway while six of Asheville’s established artists create “flash” art on stage. Upbeat music will carry you through the changing colors of the runway show as the colors of Goodwill unfold.

Doors open at 6 pm for a pre-event reception and at 6:30 pm, guest host Susan Reinhardt promises to add a healthy dose of laughter to the creative fashions, spontaneous artwork and delectable foods lined up for this colorful evening.

When the lights dim, move into the reception to meet the designers and artists and explore their creations up close and personal. Ticket price of $15 includes one drink, snacks and appetizers.
