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.
