Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation’s 2017 “Runway for Hope” Fashion Show

The Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation, the charitable arm of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors, will present its “Runway for Hope” Fashion Show on Tuesday, April 4, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle.

The event, featuring fashions courtesy of Lord & Taylor in Eastchester and modeled by HGAR Realtor members, will benefit the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation.

Established in 2003 and relaunched in 2013, the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation has donated thousands of dollars to charities and non-profit organizations serving the housing, hunger, health, happiness, and humane needs of people throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond. Last year, the foundation donated more than $81,000 to 26 local charities.

“This is going to be such an exciting event, and we’re confident that this fashion show will be a huge success, as it has in the past,” said Bonnie Koff, chair of the HG Realtor Foundation’s Fundraising Committee. “What makes this unique and so popular is the fact that members of our own Hudson Gateway Realtor family will be walking the runway!”
