Rehearsals are underway to put the finishing touches on the 32nd annual Share the Love Fashion Show at the Madonna Expo Center in San Luis Obispo.

Approximately 300 people volunteer their time each year for this fundraiser, whether it’s behind the scenes or strutting their stuff down the runway.

Aside from the great entertainment, this year’s show will be adding two other beneficiaries in addition to Stand Strong.

All of the money raised will go straight to these organizations.

“It’s about, first, the support of the women’s shelter, Stand Strong, and now adding our two extra beneficiaries, Jack’s Helping Hand and Woods Humane. They’re just all very close to our hearts. It’s nice to be able to give back,” said Stephen Patrick, fashion show executive producer.

“It’s one of those places where everybody comes together and fosters these great relationships and sometimes we don’t see each other for a whole year, even though we’re in the same community, but we look forward to that time of rehearsal and that weekend and every time is just magical when we’re all there together,” added Todd LeMay, fashion show executive producer.

KSBY’s Richard Gearhart and Carina Corral will be among those walking in the fashion show.

There will be lunch and dinner shows on Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2. Tickets are available online.
