Two Minnesota teens suffering from life-threatening illnesses will have their wishes come true when they take part in the Fresh Face Showcase Fashion Show at First Avenue on Thursday, May 22.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation recently interviewed the two 15-year-olds, Eleni of Eagan and Jasmine of Cass Lake, and both girls revealed their dream is to be a model. By partnering with the Developing Arts and Music Foundation and Fresh Face Showcase, Make-A-Wish will be able to grant these wishes.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is making their dreams come true by providing each with a day at the spa, clothes, a two-hour photo shoot and pointers from professional models. Their dream will culminate with the Fresh Face Fashion Show.

The show is 7 p.m.-9 p.m., in the First Avenue Mainroom at the corner of 1st Avenue and 7th Street. The show will feature 60 local models, dancers and deejays. Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 at the door.
