Before you even say anything, we already know: It's probably the most boring name for a fashion show ever, and it also makes us think of homeless people. And that's a shame, because The Volunteers of America Holiday Fashion Show is just as haute and sleek as any show with a sexier name, and besides showcasing works from such hot Denver labels as Garbarini, Lawrence Covell and Mariel, Volunteers of America dedicates 91 percent of its proceeds to good causes. Not that you'll be contributing to that, because these tickets are free.
In the spirit of the community service Volunteers of America does, in this ticket giveaway, we're going to do a community service for Volunteers of America -- namely, we're going to help them rename their crappily-named show. That's where you come in.
In the comments section, suggest a new name for the Volunteers of America Holiday Fashion Show -- these suggestions do not have to be feasible or even good; in fact, it's likely the winner will be someone who comes up with a worse name for the show, because we tend to like things that are funny. But if the holidays have softened your heart, we'll consider earnest answers, too.
Best/funniest/most obnoxious answer wins. Winners will be determined in an entirely subjective way by whatever Westword staff happens to be standing around when we pick a winner -- and make sure to leave a valid email address in the field, so we can get a hold of you to let you know you won. Deadline: 3 p.m. tomorrow.
The show is Saturday evening at 8:30 p.m. at the EXDO event center.
