What is “STRUT” ?

In 2019, we launched the flagship fundraiser, “STRUT,” an all-male fashion show that
honors men for being a Compassionate Leader that works towards the Achievement of Service
and Success: Men of C.L.A.S.S. Each year, over 200 people attend in support of the
organization and to cheer on the honorees as they model on the runway. The honorees
represent both private and public sectors. The event serves as the primary fundraiser.
