Fashion Club plans “Denim Day”

Many people look forward to “casual Friday;” however, wouldn’t it be nice to have an excuse to dress down in the middle of the week?

The Fashion Merchandising club at Mercyhurst has some very exciting things planned for this year. One of these things includes a “Denim Day.”

The event is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, Oct. 23. The Fashion Club will be collecting a donation of $3 from individuals who would like to wear their jeans on Oct. 23.

This event is in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The proceeds from the event itself will go towards the American Cancer Society.

This event is primarily targeted towards the faculty, staff, and the administration, since students typically are already dressed down.

“The club officers and I are really eager to raise awareness for breast cancer around campus,” Fashion Club president Emily Isbell said. “We’re hoping that faculty participate in Denim Day to help support the fight for the cure.”

Collection cups can be found in the fashion merchandising department on the third floor of Old Main. Individuals can drop off their donations anytime up until the day of the event.
Denim Day is also partially associated with the Lee Jeans National Denim Day, which is a national campaign, which has raised more than $89 million since 1996.

“We hope that as many faculty, administration, and staff will participate so we will have a nice donation to the American Cancer Society,” said Fashion Club adviser Jen Craven.
