The Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary Fashion Show & Luncheon

Giving Never Goes Out of Style

Neither rain, nor cold, nor wet feet could dampen the enthusiasm of the dedicated women who attended the annual Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary Fashion Show & Luncheon on May 2 at Brook Hollow Golf Club. Co-chairs, Patti Flowers and Pam Busbee, attired in rain boots and umbrellas, greeted the well-dressed audience with welcoming smiles. Sandra Cecil was the Honorary Chairman of the annual sold-out event and WFAA's Debbie Denmon was mistress of ceremonies.

Once again Jan Strimple Production created the incredible tented Runway Show from the "best dressed" closets and stores in Dallas. Walking the runway were young models Jessica Jones and first-timer Mary Margaret Hancock. Jessica is the daughter of Karen Jones and granddaughter of Gene Jones. Mary Margaret Hancock is the daughter of Margaret Hancock and granddaughter of Marilyn Augur and Barbara Hancock-all past chairs of the event.

From Chanel handbags to couture suits, the gently enjoyed worn or never worn clothes and accessories donated by the Metroplex's best dressed make this annual fashion event the ultimate recycling opportunity. "We are so fortunate to live in Dallas where sharing is always fashionable and gently enjoyed clothes can keep on giving," said Flowers. "The Fashion Show, the Chic Boutique and the WEARhouse Sale all provided multiple opportunities to purchase designer items at fabulous prices."

"The Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary makes a direct and positive impact on the lives of individuals in need for 20 years," said Captain Michelle Matthews. "Over the years, the Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary has raised $7.25 million dollars and given back over $5.5 million to the Salvation Army programs in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex, including homeless shelters and prevention, youth programs, emergency financial assistance and domestic violence programs."
