According to 2019 Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Fashion Show and Luncheon Chair Elizabeth Gambrell,
“I hope the community will join me in supporting The Salvation Army and its Women’s Auxiliary by attending the ‘2019 Fashion Show & Luncheon’ on Tuesday, May 7, at 10:00 a.m.
“I am honored to be chairing the 27th annual event, which will be held for the first time at AT&T Performing Arts Center, Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, in the Dallas Arts District. Event highlights will include a silent auction, a first view of the runway collection and shopping in the Chic Boutique, where gently worn or never worn designer clothing and accessories donated by some of North Texas’ best dressed and finest retailers are available for sale. Attendees will then enjoy a runway fashion show styled and produced by Jan Strimple Productions, featuring donated and new couture clothing which can be bid on following the show. Afterwards, patrons will enjoy a seated lunch and final bidding on silent and runway auction items
“This year we are honoring two amazing ladies who have both been longstanding supporters of The Salvation Army: Jacqueline Fojtasek who is serving as honorary chair, and Gina C. Jones, who is the recipient of the 2019 Margot Perot Service Award given to an Auxiliary volunteer who has gone above and beyond in service and support to The Salvation Army.
“I am also excited to announce that Tootsies is returning for a sixth year to facilitate our Chic Boutique sales. New and gently used couture clothing may be donated for use in the fashion show and the Chic Boutique and can be dropped off at Tootsies in Preston Center starting on Friday, February 1, until Friday, March 8. Those who drop off donated items to Tootsies will receive a $25 gift card as a thank you.”
