On Saturday 16 January, students enrolled on the Events & Conventions Management course at Alpine College demonstrated their management, leadership and transferable skills by organising an outstanding charity fundraising Fashion Show at Alpine’s campus in Glyfada. Led by a student enrolled on the Master’s programme in International Hospitality & Tourism Leadership, the event demonstrated true leadership and commitment to excellence, coupled with a community spirit, as the proceeds of the evening were given to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a non-profit organisation that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
The event, styled as a beauty contest, was very well attended by students, staff, industry professionals, media and sponsors. Seven Alpine students were the contestants for Miss Alpine 2010. They modeled designer clothes, courtesy of Style Studio boutique, owned and managed by an Alpine graduate. The gold sponsor for the event was Interamerican Athens Branch. Not only did Interamerican present Miss Alpine with a laptop computer as the first prize, but they also contributed to the cost of the event and lavished all the ladies in attendance with an attractive commemorative T-shirt carrying the event’s name. Over 15 prizes for all contestants were sponsored by various other companies including Bravo Travel, Ledra Marriott, The DMC, Urbane Group, MVS Esthetic Dentistry, Jewels & Jems, Andro-Mitsi & Lefti, all of which actively support Alpine, not least in its effort to raise money for charity.
The fashion show was followed by a very upbeat party with famous DJ Nikos Alatas. For pictures and videos of the event please visit Alpine’s News and Events website at www.alpine.edu.gr .
