Catwalk for a Cure features downtown merchants
Greer Merchants are collaborating to stage Catwalk for a Cure, a fashion event at Grace Hall this fall. Partnered with the Susan G. Coleman foundation, the event will be raising awareness for Breast Cancer.

Models will be walking the runway with 48 men and women outfits from Greer Station Association merchants: Chelsea’s, Greer Trading Post, Gregory’s, Maiale, Smith & James, Talloni and Southern Sisters. Vendors will sell crafts, jewelry and scarves.

“We want to invite people to this event to have fun. We don’t want people to come in the door thinking we just want their money,” Keith Challenger, promotional director, said.

The fashion show is Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 which includes light hors d’oeuvres and beverages.

"We've organized fashion shows over the past few years in downtown Greer and they've been very successful. This time, we're moving to a bigger venue with more retailers involved and we're supporting Breast Cancer Awareness, so we're really excited,” Kristi Mabry, event planner, said.

"We've got more models and outfits at this show than we've ever had before. In fact we still have people stepping up and saying they want to be involved. When you get them all together at a fashion show like this you realize how many clothing and accessory options we have in downtown Greer,” Anne Hendley, fashion coordinator and owner of Maiale Boutique, said.
