ASU Friends of Art and Music Education (FAME) will host a spring FAME style show featuring the haute couture women’s fashions of Julian Gold of Midland on Tuesday, April 3, in the Houston Harte University Center.

FAME is a program that raises money for arts, music, and theatre scholarships. The ASU FAME Board of Directors distributes $500 and $1,000 scholarship awards each year. Since its inception in 1998, FAME has awarded more than 400 scholarships to ASU students, totaling more than $190,000.

FAME not only contributes to scholarship funds through fundraisers, but also through paid memberships.

“The membership fees go towards scholarships for art, music, and theatre students,” Office of Development coordinator Ridge Goodloe said. “Anyone can become a member, and we will have information about how to become a member at the style show.” 

FAME membership comes with benefits like invitation to all art, music, and theatre events Goodloe said.

The FAME spring fundraiser will begin at 2 p.m. in the C.J. Davidson Conference Center with a Julian Gold “Pop Up Shop” and silent auction.

The style show will start at 3 p.m., and fashions on display will be available for purchase in the “Pop Up Shop.”

Models for the event will include some of ASU’s own staff members from the Office of Development. 

“Some of the models are Jenny Love, she works in our office as well; Jamie Akin, the vice president of development; and some other really sweet ladies from the community who are very involved at ASU,” Goodloe said.

The public is invited to attend the event. Tickets are $20 each in advance and $25 at the door. ASU students can attend for $10 each. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards funding student scholarships.

To order tickets, contact the Office of Development at 325-942-2116.
