Thanks for Supporting Challenge Your Fashion

The 11th annual Challenge Your Fashion event on Saturday, January 27, 2018 was filled with fun, fashion and great times. This year's event raised more than $160,000 for the YMCA of Greater Kansas City’s Challenger program, which helps children and young adults with diverse needs gain strength, confidence, friendship, and more. View our event recap for more details about this great night for a great cause.
