#5: Trail Chic rocks the runway for outdoor educationDecember 27th, 2012 by Arya, Communications Director
This is really one of those events that you’ve got to see to believe. The Mono Lake Committee pairs up with Barefoot Wine & Bubbly for this seriously fun fundraiser where volunteer models inspired by all things outdoors—paddlers, birders, mountaineers, retro-backpackers, alien hikers, an alkali fly, and even a non-native invasive weed—strut down an astroturf runway.
This year we had help from our friends at Bike & Build, cyclists who support affordable housing, who rolled into town just in time to strut their stuff on the runway. Models sported gear from event sponsors Patagonia and Wilson’s Eastside Sports, and the audience enjoyed snacks from the Mono Market paired with their favorite Barefoot beverages and a great silent auction. We couldn’t do this event without Barefoot—thank you!
Trail Chic happens every other year, so we hope to see you in 2014!
