The Bellevue Collection recently held its Spring 2015 Canvas of Style Runway Show at Bellevue Square’s Center Court. 100% of the proceeds from the tickets sold at the runway show benefited BE a Smart Girl program of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Bellevue. The show raised $10,000 for the program.

The Boys and Girls Club of Bellevue currently serves over 11,000 members and their families, providing a safe, fun place that encourages kids to choose healthy lifestyles, get involved with their communities and achieve academic success. By inspiring youth to make constructive life choices, they strive to help them realize their full potential. BE a Smart Girl is a comprehensive programming strategy for female members that addresses three program areas: academic success, leadership and health. Programs include: access to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) curriculum through partners such as GIRLSTART; group discussions about positive choices and healthy global relationships, targeted athletics just for girls, one-to-one academic tutoring, and mentoring with adult female role models and career exploration.
