High fashion came to Vermillion April 12 as sorority Kappa Alpha Theta held their annual KATwalk fashion show.
Proceeds were used to benefit their philanthropy, Court Appointed Special Advocates For Children, which “advocate(s) for the best interests of abused and neglected children,” according to the organization’s website.
Wearing outfits donated by Chelsea’s Boutique, a Sioux Falls clothing store, women from every sorority walked the stage in the Muenster University Center ballroom, while students and their families made bids on the many baskets of the event’s silent auction or ate some of the Aramark-sponsored food.
After the women’s show, men from various fraternities competed in costumes inspired by eras of history, with even “The Future” making an appearance.
The winner, Hans Tvedt as “Superman,” was praised by Sherri Rodgers-Conti, the Yankton representative for CASA. She said his costume reflected the status of CASA volunteers as superheroes to otherwise forgotten victims of child abuse.
The event raised over $4,000.
