The 9th annual Meghan McCarthy Fashion Show will take place Thursday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. in McGrath Auditorium at Tewksbury Memorial High School.
The event has become a treasured tradition at Tewksbury High, honoring the memory of Meghan McCarthy, a beloved student and talented multi-sport athlete, who passes away in 2010, from an inoperable brain tumor(glioblastoma multiforme).
The event is organized by Tewksbury High DECA Business Marketing Club, as a community service project. All proceeds generated by the production go towards the Meghan McCarthy Research Fund.
Each of the models participating in the fashion show must raise at least $50 to walk the runway. To date, more than $7,000 has raised by the models. More than a dozen local businesses are also helping support the show with donations of either cash, products or services.
Among those in attendance at the event will be many of Meghan McCarthy's friends and members of her family.
