Kroger’s annual Rock Your Beauty Fashion Show is sending a message that all bodies are beautiful while also raising money to help a good cause.
The fashion show will be held Wednesday, March 8 from 6-10 p.m. at Memorial Hall in Over-the-Rhine. Kroger says it aims to celebrate International Women’s Day; promote body confidence, self-love and positivity and showcase how all women are beautiful. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Women Helping Women, a local nonprofit that helps prevent gender-based violence and assists survivors.
Guest speakers at Rock Your Beauty include president of Kroger Health Colleen Lindholz and Women Helping Women CEO Kristin Shrimplin. Dance students from the School for Creative and Performing Arts will also perform.
Doors will open at 6 p.m. for cocktails, a silent auction and shopping with local, women-owned businesses. Lindholz and Shrimplin will speak at 7:30 p.m., and the fashion show kicks off at 8 p.m.
In a press release, Kroger says 2022’s Rock Your Beauty show sold out the Woodward Theater and raised $12,000 for Women Helping Women. More than 300 tickets have already been sold for 2023’s show, and Kroger says it’s increasing its diverse model presence from 20 to 43 women. It will also host its vendor presence from six to 10 local, women-owned businesses this year.
Tickets are $35-$100 and can be purchased here.
