ABOUT STYLEWORKS

Once known as the 365 Club Benefit Luncheon and Fashion Show, StyleWorks has been sharing fashion with compassion since 1977. This unique event brings the community and volunteers together to celebrate the work and passion of Siskin Children’s Institute.

StyleWorks is a luncheon and fashion show featuring local models as well as current and former children of the Institute along with their families. Models will showcase Dillard’s trendiest clothing and accessories in the StyleWorks runway fashion show, produced by Kim Coulter Style Makers. Guests will be treated to a show full of smiling faces that highlight the work of Siskin Children’s Institute.

Ten children will be featured at this year’s event, both children currently enrolled in programs and those who got their start with the Institute and are flourishing as teens and adults. Guests will be inspired by their stories and their incredible accomplishments, all while enjoying an exciting runway fashion show like no other. 

In addition to the fashion show, attendees will have the opportunity to shop at the pop-up Dillard’s store just before the luncheon (10:30 am) and following the fashion show. 

It’s fashion with compassion, supporting Siskin Children’s Institute’s programs and services in the areas of education, outreach, health care, and home visiting.
