Features a luncheon, raffle, and most importantly, an amazing fashion show highlighting the wonderful children and adults with Down syndrome that are part of GiGi’s Playhouse McHenry County.  Join us as we celebrate the participants and their achievements!

The health and safety of all guests, models and volunteers is our #1 priority. The following procedures will be in place during the 2022 Fashion Show Luncheon:

  • Face masks must be worn at all times except when eating or the model is walking down the runway. The only exception to this procedure will be if a person has a medical exemption and is fully vaccinated. That person must let us know in advance and provide copies of the doctor’s note authorizing the exemption and a vaccination card.
  • All guests will be pre-screened at the registration table. This includes a temperature check and answering the Covid-19 pre-screening questions. If anyone’s temperature is above CDC limits or answers yes to the majority of the questions that person will not be permitted to enter the event.
  • All luncheon tables will be 8’ apart from each other and 8’ from the runway.
  • Guests have the option to sit at a table with those they specify, regardless of how many people they choose
  • Families can select their table if they wish, on a first-served first-come basis. To take advantage of this benefit send us an email requesting the room layout once you have purchased your tickets.

These have been developed based on the latest information from the CDC, IDPH and DCEO. As their guidelines change these procedures will change.

Registration coming soon
