Down Syndrome Model Audition in DC March 15

posted by Nell Minow

Fashion savvy models with Down syndrome are auditioning on March 15 to star in the Global Down Syndrome Foundation’s (GDSF) May 8th Be Beautiful Be Yourself Gala, a high-style fashion show and fundraiser taking place at the Ritz Carlton in D.C. with celebrities, a well-known musical act, and members of Congress. The gala is designed to raise awareness about the chromosomal disorder affecting one in 691 babies and will honor Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Rep. Chris Van Hollen for their support of those with disabilities.

The auditions are taking place Friday, March 15, 2013, 6:00-8:30pm at George Washington University’s Marvin Center.  It is great to see opportunities for a wider variety of models to remind us how much beauty is around us.
