SALISBURY – Partners In Learning has lined up top talent, models with special needs and local sponsors for its Fourth Annual “Just As I Am” Special Needs Fashion Show and fundraiser on Tuesday,

September 8th at 7 p.m. This event will air live on Facebook as well as Hotwire Channel 397.

The annual fashion show is in memory of alumni Jacob Usher, who passed away in 2015, at the age of eight.

Back by popular demand, Ashley Currin will be Partners In Learning’s master of ceremony again this year.

“I am excited and honored to have the privilege of hosting the Partners In Learning fashion show again this year,” Currin said. “It is such an exciting and special night for these children, you can feel and see the love, emotion, and beaming pride radiating out of each child, and I instantly fell in love and wanted to do anything and everything I could to raise money for these amazing children.”

Gabe was later retweeted by Ellen DeGeneres during one of his weekly workouts with Dewayne Smith at Partners In Learning.

Wivianny DeHaas, owner of Heart of Salisbury and Partners In Learning board member, donated the space for this year’s event.
