The Burbank Chapter of the mother-daughter nonprofit National Charity League, Inc. hosts a fashion show each year to honor its members who have completed their required service hours.
The girls usually seek help from clothing vendors to model their outfits during the event, but in recent years, there have been fewer and fewer businesses willing to donate clothing.
When Burbank High School junior and chapter member Danielle Boyce, 16, heard this, she took it upon herself to take on the project of making 12 custom, handmade dresses for the Ticktockers — the daughter members of the nonprofit — for this year’s fashion show, which will be held Saturday at the Los Angeles Marriott next to Bob Hope Airport.
