La Roche College's GLOBE Fashion Show

  • La Roche College

GPBF is honored to announce that we will be the beneficiary of a fundraiser (Thursday 4/20) hosted by La Roche College’s student group, GLOBE (Globalization for La Roche: One Beat on Earth). The annual fashion show and cultural program reflects the college’s commitment to global engagement and cultural awareness and aligns with GPBF goals of building understanding and reducing prejudice and hate among young people. GPBF Founder and Executive Director Tom Etzel was invited to make a presentation at the event. Pittsburgh friends of GPBF are encouraged to attend the fashion show and cultural program to support GLOBE and GPBF.

GPBF is grateful for this opportunity and would like to thank GLOBE for its generosity.
