Sal­va­tion Army host­ing Rouge Fash­ion Show on Mon­day

The Daily Courier - - WESTSIDE WEEKLY -

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.
