"Modeling for a Cause" is a collaborative production that was started 
by the RCC Video/Audio Club in 2010. It is comprised of a group of 
individuals who strive towards fashion, music production, cultural 
diversity and community involvement. The premise of "Modeling for a 
Cause" is the belief that the visual arts and fashion, in particular, 
should work as a vehicle for promoting social change throughout the 
community. "Modeling for a Cause" promotes ethnic and cultural 
diversity through event production with a focus on scholarship, self- 
esteem building, professional advancement, personal enrichment and 
lifelong learning. Each year, "Modeling for a Cause" provides a sizable 
donation to a charitable organization in line with its mission and goals.
