Themed fashion scenes taking place throughout the evening will include winter/fall, Caribbean island, children, hip hop and “red alert” in recognition of diabetes awareness. Featured models will be students attending Owens, Toledo Public Schools and Winterfield Venture Charter Academy, as well as community members.

Nationally-known comedian Darrell Banks and Hot 97.3 on-air radio personality lilD will serve as the event hosts.

Entertainment will be provided by the Owens Dance Express Team, House of Adonis, Winterfield Venture Charter Academy, and Springfield High School graduate and Bowling Green State University student performer “Monica,” among many others.

Additionally, Rossford First Baptist Church Rev. Alexander Sheares will share personal accounts about his struggles with diabetes.
