Suicide Prevention Derby Fashion Show

Live Out Loud Charity (LOLC) is hosting a fashion show to raise funds for suicide prevention and anti-bullying. Local and national fashion designers will showcase their collections on stage at one of Louisville’s premier venues; the Crowne Plaza. Over 150 models of all sizes, heights, ages, and ethnic backgrounds will take the stage to stand against suicide and bullying.

“Our models are real people affected by suicide, depression, bullying, and low self-esteem. Each person that walks our runway is empowered by our training and the incredible experiences they gain at LOLC events. Live Out Loud Charity is a major support system for individuals needing a positive outlet to rebuild their confidence,” states founder, Sherrie Gearheart.
