A Message from Honorary Co-Chairs Mark and Lauren Teahen

Dear Challenger friends,

It is an honor for us to come back this year to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Challenge Your Fashion as Honorary Co-Chairs. When we came up with the idea to host a fashion show and auction to support this incredible program, we had no idea that the event would have such a lasting impact on so many lives and how it has supported building an inclusive sports complex and expanded challenger programs across the city.

We still have a little more we would love to accomplish including building two more baseball fields. As you can imagine, after ten years the kids have grown and the program has expanded, so we need a couple of bigger fields to grow with the kids.  

As our family has expanded we know how important it is to keep all kids active and engaged. We want to ensure the Challenger Program’s success for many years to come. I hope you will join us in celebrating 10 years of fashion and finish the expansion of the sports complex that we started 10 years ago! 

Thank you,

Mark and Lauren Teahen
2017 Event Honorary Co-Chairs
