Amount raised: $400
Pittsburg State University and area high school women spent Sunday afternoon learning how to defend themselves from attackers and raising money for The Ali Kemp Education Foundation.
Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority and Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity teamed up with the T.A.K.E. Foundation and Pittsburg businesses The Jean Scene, and Salon 9 to host the annual Ali’s Runway Fashion Show and T.A.K.E. self-defense class at Parrott Bey. About 120 people showed up for the event and raised more than $400, all of which will go to the T.A.K.E foundation, which was created “to equip women of all ages with the resources they need to feel safe.”
