Founded by Sue Miller, a former Denver fashion model who learned she had breast cancer in 1971, this is more than just a fashion show; the event also provides information on preventing, treating and surviving breast cancer. Celebrating its thirtieth anniversary this year, Evening of Caring will start with cocktails at 5:30 p.m., then an informational program at 6:30 p.m., and the fashion show at 8 p.m. The models for the show are all breast cancer survivors; fashions are provided by Brooks LTD and Macys. Tickets are limited; contact Kate Van Daele at 720-633-7860.
The Denver Paper Fashion Show is the largest paper fashion show in the nation, with fifty teams creating runway designs almost entirely out of paper donated by Xpedx.

Tickets start at $30 and can be purchased at www.adcd.com/paper-fashion-show.
