Salvation Army hosting Rouge Fashion Show on Monday
The Army Rouge Fashion Show will take place at the Capri Hotel in Kelowna, 1171 Harvey Ave., this Monday at 7 p.m.
“We are thrilled to be back,” says Patty Lou Bryant, Salvation Army communications co-ordinator. “In February, we launched our rst ever fashion show. This time we are in a bigger venue. The rst 150 tickets will receive a swag bag of wonderful gifts, an evening clutch, jewelry, coupons for our Thrift Stores, hair salon coupons and more.
“Our models are leaders in our community and represent the diversity of women today. Thrilled to have Kathy Butler from Okanagan College and Karen Hill from the Capital News to walk our runway.”
Bryant added “There are three different segments: Casual wear, work attire and a formal out t. Our goal is to show the audience that thrift shopping offers unique clothing at amazing prices. Most of our out ts will be under $25 and look absolutely spectacular.
“We have added a silent auction portion to the show. We have more than 50 designer items from Escada, Boss, Georges Rech, Joseph Ribkoff, Ralph Lauren, and Karen Wilson that we will be auctioning off. Most of the designer items have a suggested retail price of over $500. They are in a variety of sizes and beyond gorgeous. This is a great opportunity to buy a high end item, look fabulous and help The Salvation Army Central Okanagan.”
Tickets for Army Rouge are $20 for adults and $10 for students with valid ID; they are available at all three thrift stores: Westbank Store, No. 101, 3531 Old Okanagan Hwy; and two Kelowna locations a1511 Sutherland 200 North Rutland Rd.
