Each year, our team at ONE partners with numerous health organizations and universities throughout the country to host Project CONDOM. The event — a fashion show featuring garments and accessories created from condoms — combines visual art and performance as a platform for starting conversations about sexual health and safer sex.
In early April, Blue Mountain Clinic Family Practice hosted its 10th Annual Fundraiser, Off The Rack, which featured a variety of live performances, including Project CONDOM.

This year’s show didn’t disappoint at our new venue, The Missoula Community Theatre. With a sold-out show, the hilarious dialogue of Lucinda and Lulinda, and oodles of talent, Off the Rack 2017 was — simply put — off the hook. We raised $23,000 through ticket sales, sponsorships, and generous donations making this our most successful year yet! We had a variety of acts ranging from the Montana Women’s Choir to our own LCSW, Bernie Kneefe, doing a stand-up comedic act providing guests with lots of laughs! And last, but certainly to least, we closed our show with an amazing line-up of beautifully designed condom outfits all made by local participants, including our own Director of Reproductive Care, Dr. Joey Banks adorned in an amazing pant suit covered in over 700 blue condoms!
In April 2018, Blue Mountain Clinic will host their 11th Annual Fundraiser, which will once again, feature Project CONDOM! Our team at ONE is excited to partner with Blue Mountain Clinic to help host another fantastic show!
