The Fairfax Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary will hold their 39th Annual Fashion Show/ Luncheon Friday, April 12, at the Waterford at Fair Oaks. Fashions will be presented by Lord & Taylor of Fair Oaks. Featured will be children, ladies and men’s fashions.
Modeling for the first time will be Bonnie G. Smith, local author of six novels and a book of short stories. After spending a lifetime reading history, biography and historical fiction, she decided to write her own novels, which include The Tudor Chronicles, and Ms. Smith’s crime novel series, “Only the Heart Knows Why” and “The Secret Lives of Inanimate Objects.”
There will also be a silent auction of more than 100 items to bid on to support the fundraiser. Also featured will be a Jewelry Corner, Attic Treasures and a hat contest. Prizes awarded to three of the ladies wearing the most original holiday theme hat. Door prizes will be awarded.
The event will begin at 11:15 with entertainment by Jason Paul Curtis, a local singer and recording artist, who has performed at the White House, Mt. Vernon, the Gaylord (National Harbor), McLean Symphony, Blues Alley, the National Women’s Museum and the National Building Museum.
A luncheon will be served at noon followed by the fashion show at 12:50.
The funds raised will support the programs of the Salvation Army in Fairfax County. The fundraiser helps the auxiliary run its annual back-to-school program of donated school supplies and back packs in August and supports its annual stocking stuffer program for Christmas distribution in December.
Funds raised also support the Salvation Army’s summer program at Camp Happy Land in Richardsville, VA, where children and young adults from the Fairfax area attend a week-long camp. Additionally, the after-school program, the music program and two children’s homes in Mexico are supported.
