The unique showcase will feature live activations including canvas, mannequin and body painting while guests enjoy DJ’d entertainment and light refreshments throughout the evening. In an effort to benefit the LVFC’s scholarship fund, in support of emerging student artists and designers, guests can bid on a variety of culinary, fashion, beauty and art silent auction packages.

The honored wish kid will receive runway and photography training, professional hair and make up, fashion styling and then debut in the artLIVE! fashion show to bring the wish to life during a special night.
