The event will wind down with a recycled outfit runway show at Lamasco Bar and Grill.

This month, you can wear jeans to work to raise awareness about child abuse. Holly’s House is partnering with local businesses and organizations in the “Blue Jeans for Prevention” campaign. The plan is for businesses and other groups to dedicate specific days where employees and associates can wear blue jeans. In return, employees are asked to make a donation to Holly’s House. Holly’s House is also providing blue ribbon pins for those settings where jeans are not appropriate at work.
