Live Out Loud Charity's 1st Annual Derby Fashion Show was featured on the news (Channel 3 - The Wave on March 26th, 2017). Our Teen Kentucky Ambassador, Shanna McClung was featured on the runway with all the gorgeous models that volunteered their time for our cause of anti-bullying, suicide prevention, and core character development.
