After attending Runway in 2014, Thomas Coates, former Buffalo State Events Management Director and his husband, Dr. Brad Mazon, were so impressed with the student show they donated $10,000 to the FTT department and created the Runway Forever! Fund. This special fund is to help students' prepare their collections for the annual Runway fashion show. Each year, the FTT department gives each Senior Designer $100 - $150 towards their Runway footwear and accessories. This fund helps FTT students create a professional Runway show from head to toe. The Runway production has also dedicated their "Runway Fashion Closet" to Mr. Coates and Dr. Mazon. Through their generous donation, the Runway team has been able to grow our fashion styling closet over the years.
Mr. Coates and Dr. Mazon encourage you to join them in raising $25,000 to endow this fund. Click HERE to support the RUNWAY FOREVER! FUND.
Thank you Tom & Brad for kicking off this challenge in 2014 with a generous gift of $10,000, and most recently with your second gift toward the Runway Forever! Fund of $2,500.
