Becky Catino, formerly the president of Security National Automotive Acceptance Corp. in Ohio, is currently serving as the chairwoman of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Cincinnati. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a Catholic organization founded in the 1830’s, and exists to help local individuals by providing care, whether spiritual, emotional, or material.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Cincinnati, where Becky Catino serves, sponsors many events throughout the year. An annual event in the fall called RetroFittings involves about 70 local university students in a special night of fashion and fun.

Participating students shop at any of Cincinnati’s seven St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores and find donated clothes within a budget of $15 to refashion into modern, runway-worthy outfits. On the night of the RetroFittings event, their designs are showcased for all who attend.

RetroFittings has been an annual event for more than ten years. RetroFittings 2016 will take place on Thursday, October 13. The location will be the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati. To donate or volunteer, please visit www.svdpcincinnati.org.
