hartwick water polo Fall fashion show set for this this Sunday
While Mother Nature is getting dressed up for fall in her autumnal colors of brilliant scarlet, sunny yellow and bright orange, the Woman’s Club of Greene County wants to help update people’s fashion wardrobes for the season.
On Sunday, Oct. in the cafeteria at William Monroe High School in Stanardsville. Tickets are $10 each.
“The tickets get you entrance into the fashion show, where we will be serving finger foods, sweets, water and sweet tea to enjoy during the show,” said Woman’s Club President Maura Rodriguez. “What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
“The ticket price also gets you one raffle ticket,” she added. “Separately, the raffle tickets are $2 a piece or three for $5. There are over 40 prizes to win and you don’t have to be present to win. The members of the club worked on the raffle all summer and the businesses mostly in Greene have been incredibly generous.”
“We have been selling fashion show and raffle tickets during the summer and in front of Wal Mart and have been wildly successful,” Rodriguez said.
People can get both tickets at the door the day of the fashion show or they can call (434) 985 1205 or (434) 985 6648 to get them ahead of time.
“This is going to be a very personal fashion show,” Rodriguez said. “The models won’t be on a runway, they will be walking through the tables so the crowd can get a really good look at the outfits and ask questions if they are interested. All the fashions come from Belk.
“We have about 14 models and their ages range from young women who are current students at William Monroe High School to members of the club and volunteers,” she said. “Each model will wear a formal outfit and a more casual, everyday outfit.”
It’s been great fun choosing and getting together the outfits, Rodriguez said. “The students were a riot and I think everyone involved with and at the fashion show are going to have a great time. I am really looking forward to it.”
Also looking forward to the event is the Woman’s Club of Greene Scholarship Committee, which will benefit from ticket and raffle sales. The committee has found it difficult to choose just one or two scholarship recipients with such outstanding students applying.
By using fundraisers such as the fashion show and the recent successful Cause Night dinner at The Lafayette Inn in Stanardsville, the committee will have more leeway on the number of students who can receive scholarships.
The Woman’s Club of Greene Scholarships go to female students graduating from William Monroe High School. Applications will be available through the guidance office at the school and will be presented in the spring. During Sunday’s show, attendees can find out more about the Woman’s Club of Greene County.
The other big upcoming project is the club’s annual Children’s Christmas Gift Project which makes sure every needy child in Greene County shares the magic of Christmas with the gift of a new toy to unwrap and books to read.
