PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It was glitz, glamour and trash bags Thursday night to help the Salvation Army.

It was their annual Garbage Bag Gala & Fashion Show at the Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square.

Designers from across the region competed to see who could create the best gown made from garbage.

The event raised $50,000 for the Family Caring Center, which offers housing for homeless families.
