Tallahassee, FL -- The Heart Gallery of North Florida hosted its third annual 'Back to School Fashion Show' at the Goodwood Museum in Tallahassee.

Local celebrities were paired up with kids looking for permanent homes. The teams shopped at Goodwill back in July for all of their fashionable attire, and then took over the runway to show off and have a little fun for a good cause.

"This is not a fundraiser, this is strictly an event to raise awareness for foster care and adoption, we'll probably have some fundraisers throughout the year but tonight we're just here to celebrate the kids and to get to know them a little better," said Donna Wright, a member of the Heart Gallery's Board of Directors.

The Heart Gallery also launched its website, www.heartgallerynorthflorida.org. It features pictures and info for children in the Big Bend foster care system.
