Fashion Show

Buy Tickets Here!

On Sunday, March 3, 2024, the National Charity League (NCL) of Southlake will unite with our gracious supporters to host our 27th annual Fashion Show & Benefit. Our goal is to raise funds for local philanthropic initiatives that are enriching our communities. 

The 2023 event raised nearly $110,000 from sponsorships, ticket sales and auction proceeds to benefit charities in need. For our 2024 show, we seek to again raise $110,000, of which 100% will go directly to 14 local charities in need, including: Christmas is For Children (CIFC), GRACE Feed Our Kids (FOK), House of Shine (HOS), The Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT), Me Squared Cancer Foundation, Metroport Meals on Wheels, Mid-Cities Christmas Providers, Miracle League of Southlake, National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC), North Texas Community Table, Carroll Dragons Special Olympics, Stepping Stones Foundation, Summer Santa, and The Gifting Project. 

Our sponsors play a crucial role in bringing this unique event to life. By becoming an NCL Fashion Show sponsor, you can showcase your services to the Southlake community while making a significant contribution to support deserving local charities with just one generous gesture.

On behalf of our 14 charity recipients and nearly 350 members of NCL Southlake, thank you for your consideration and support.

We’ll see you on Sunday, March 3rd. Doors open at 2pm and the show begins at 4pm.
