Kendall Bend’s 2023 Catwalk for a Cause benefitting Choose Joy Foundation raised over $132,000 for the children in our community. Choose Joy Foundation’s mission is to restore normalcy in the lives of children affected by substance abuse. With the funds raised, Choose Joy Foundation will furnish four new recovery homes for families staying there while their parents recover and help the foundation expand their outreach.

The Catwalk event brought together 17 models from our local business community, 19 amazing sponsors and supporters, 7 local retail partners, and 300 attendees. All models pledged to raise $2500 leading up to the event, where we got to celebrate their hard work by supporting them on the Catwalk. We would like to thank all of our partners that made this event such a success, including our models who exceeded all fundraising and modeling expectations!

Another HUGE thank you to our sponsors, volunteers, and supporters. You all made a dream event turn into reality; this event reminds us how much of an impact we can make on our community when we all work toward the same mission.

We are overwhelmed with Joy and can’t wait to see you all next year for another incredible Catwalk!
