On Monday, October 15th, the church hall at Sacred Heart was transformed with glitz and glamour into a fashionista’s delight.  This year’s annual fund raiser, a combination of luncheon and fashion show, was attended by over 200 members and their guests. 
 
Home Plate catered a very tasty chicken/spinach salad with pecans and mandarin oranges and raspberry vinaigrette dressing which was served by the “guys in bow ties”, members of Sacred Heart’s Men’s Club and the Knights of Columbus local council.  The ladies were expertly pampered by these waiters, as well as by more “guys” who acted as bartenders serving mimosas or a selection of wines to satisfy the ladies’ tastes.
 
Fashions by Hot Springs Lagniappe Boutique, presented by owner Marcia Dobbs-Smith, proved that elegance and fun could be merged in fashionable clothing for all sizes, shapes and occasions.  Models for the fashion show were all members of the Ladies of Sacred Heart.  They graced the stage and then circulated among the tables so all attendees could get a close up look at the lovely clothing and jewelry they modeled. 
 
The fashion show was interspersed with awards of door prizes, donated through the generosity of local businesses, and ended with the results of the raffle and winners of the silent auction bids.  The beautiful raffle prizes and auction items were all the artful creations of very talented SHJ parishioners.
 
Fashion show chairwomen Nancy Froning and Joyce Field, with a whole lot of help from their committee members, can be proud of their highly enjoyable and very successful event.
