Share-A-Date: 15th Annual Attitudes & Attire Luncheon and Fashion Show

Friday, February 24: The 15th Annual Attitudes & Attire Luncheon and Fashion Show at the Grand Pavilion of the Dallas Trade Mart is going to be a little different this year. Instead of having Paulette Martsolf‘s Allie-Coosh fashions on the runway, Elements will be handling the look.

No hard feelings about the change of fashion suppliers. Hey, these folks are in a business that changes each season. Paulette reports that while she may not be on the runway, she’s still a big supporter of Attitudes & Attire and all they do for women trying to become self sufficient. Suspect the poor girl is being pulled in all types of directions with her new jewelry line in addition to designing A-C clothes and running the Snider Plaza salon.

A&A Event Chair Christi Clinger and Honorary Chair Janet Fresquez have also announced that Sarah Losinger will receive the Kim Dawson Award.

Clear Channels Public Affairs Director Anna de Haro will serve as emcee.
