held in Washington D.C. aimed to raise money for the Team DC College Scholarship Fund.

According to Team DC, any self-identified lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender student-athlete who has made a contribution to the sport(s) they are in and show promise of being a positive role model as a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender individual, will be eligible to apply for the student-athlete scholarship, which will provide up to $2,000 of financial support.

At the fundraiser show, each of the participating models represented a sport, be it rugby, rowing, skiing, dodgeball or running.

 

The clothes they were wearing were auctioned off, while proceeds from a wide range of fashion brands, such as Whiskey Ginger, Inseam Clothing & Supply, Rufskin, C-IN2 and many more, were also collected to fund the cause.

On top of putting up a great show to raise funds, the models were also competing for cash prizes themselves, as well as a chance to be the cover boy of Compete Magazine, and a photo shoot with fashion photographer Robert Mercer.

And here are some pictures from that night:

In 2015, the event had raised enough money to fund nine graduating high school seniors, a record for number of scholarships sponsored.

Applications for the 2016 scholarships are still open until June 1, 2016. More information can be found here.
