CAISA'S INNOVA Smashes Fundraising Record
On Friday, March 16, students from Western University put on a grand production replete with high-end fashion and dazzling choreography for the annual CAISA (Canadian Asian International Student Association) Fashion Show at Centennial Hall. The student body and the London community came together in celebration of the show’s 20th anniversary and the meaningful cause it supports. This sold-out event raised a record-breaking $50,000 for research on novel models in genetic disorders for Children’s Health Foundation.
The CAISA Fashion Show is the largest student-run charity fashion show in Canada. Over the past 17 years, CFS has raised over $315,188 for Children's Health Foundation, a London foundation committed to raising and granting funds to support Children's Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre, Thames Valley Children's Centre, and Children's Health Research Institute. For this milestone production, the production team spent countless hours to put on the grandest show to date. This year’s show, INNOVA, brought a night of adventure and took the audience through an underdog story of a rising superhero.
