The McAllen Chamber of Commerce, Dos Rios Fabrics, Mary Kay Cosmetics and Debi Lou Productions will host Project Runway RGV on Thursday, September 28, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the Valencia Event Center in McAllen.

Each designer is tasked to create a unique dress that will be judged on the Most Original Design, Best Drawing to Design, Best Quality of Construction, Best in Show and People’s Choice awards. The highlight of the event will be a live auction of the dresses to raise money for cancer research.
Participants this year include last year’s winner Carmen Sanchez of McAllen, Delfina Rios of Mission, Rosy Coronado of McAllen, Lionel Campbell of Brownsville and Dinora Alvarado of Hidalgo.
