SARASOTA- Thunder by the Bay is around the corner and a few members of the SNN team are excited to be walking in the fashion show leading up to the festival.

Thunder by the Bay “Rocks the Runway” fashion show includes models showing off both Harley Davidson and Darci’s attire.

Over the past 24 years, the festival has raised over $2 million for local charities that serve children, teens, and adults with special needs.

“Honestly, I reached out to Lucy years ago about doing a fashion show because Thunder by the Bay is an incredible charity and I’ve wanted to be involved with it for a long long time,” said owner of Darci's in downtown Sarasota, Darci Jacob.

There will be 17 models walking in the show.

So many people wanted to participate that they had to create a wait-list.

One model says the energy at the fashion show each year is unmatched.

“It‘s just a riot, it’s a lot of fun. Very high energy and everybody’s just having a great time,” said model and Co-Chair for the fashion show, Wendy Rossiter.

About a year of preparing went into the fashion show and they’re expecting an even bigger turnout this year than last year.

Be sure to catch some of the SNN team alongside many more models rock the runway on February 10th at the Grove in Lakewood Ranch from 6p.m. - 10p.m.
