About the Show
We, Fashion Marketing Students at The Illinois Institute of Art - Schaumburg, are hosting our Annual Pulse Fashion Show on March 9th, 2017 at the Renaissance Convention Center in Schaumburg, IL. We are ecstatic to present to you this unique and entirely student run production. The theme of this year's show is A.R.T (Ascend,Rise,Transcend). This Year's theme is inspired by the atmospheric changes within our nation. The overall theme is adaptation, and also an opportunity to represent our generation to overcome challenges and stereotypes we face.
We believe that it is important to use this event to give back to our community. This year, we are motivated to support and grant all funds and proceeds to a local charity, Hesed House. This nonprofit organization is committed to providing homeless men, women and children with a place to live and provide services to improve self-efficiency. Their vision is to provide the necessary tools to help individuals and families break free of the shackles binding them to homelessness.DONATE TICKETS HESED HOUSE

Our Mission is to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, and give people the chance to hope again.
Our Vision is to provide the necessary tools to help individuals and families break free of the shackles binding them to homelessness.
Our History In the early 1980's religious leaders of six Aurora churches and other concerned citizens formed a grassroots coalition to shelter, feed and clothe homeless individuals and families found walking in the adverse weather conditions. Rotating among the six church halls each night to provide a port in the storm for this struggling group, a core of volunteers prepared and served food for at the churches -not just for the lone person who showed up the first night of shelter -but for the growing number of homeless who appeared at the church doors each night.
Today, Hesed House is the second largest shelter in the State of Illinois, and the largest shelter outside the city of Chicago. With the help of professional staff, alliances with outside agencies and 6,000 volunteers from 70 area churches, almost 1,000 individuals are served each year through Hesed House's shelter and three housing programs.
