‘Hats, Pearls and Gloves’ fundraiser to be held this Saturday


Want to get a preview of this season’s fabulous fashion before you shop this weekend’s sales tax holiday, AND support a great cause?

Then please join the Women’s Auxiliary of the A.G. Gaston Boys & Girls Club as they present their second annual ‘Hats, Pearls and Gloves’ luncheon and fashion show this Saturday, August 3rd!  The event will be held at the Wynfrey Hotel at the Riverchase Galleria from 11:00 AM -1:00 PM, and will feature members of the local community modeling “modern, Southern style” from Belk. 

The Club serves nearly 1,000 children in the community each year.  Its efforts with area youth emphasize character development through five core program areas: Education and Career Development, Character and Leadership Development, Health and Life Skills, Sports, Fitness & Recreation and the Arts.  The skills and characteristics gained through these programs encourage academic success, personal responsibility and teamwork. 

“We are so pleased to welcome the community to show its support for this special event benefiting our deserving young people,” said Frank E. Adams, Jr. President & Chief Professional Officer for the A.G. Gaston Boys & Girls Club.  “Building on the success of last year, we’re certain that this year’s Hats, Pearls and Gloves will be a joyous and stylish celebration.”

This year’s program – sponsored by Belk and McDonalds Corporate – will be emceed by Gina Redmond and Gene Norman of CBS 42 and will include fashion commentary from yours truly!  As a special feature, Saturday’s event will include a “Fashion Tap” where guests are invited to wear their best hats, pearls and gloves; the person with the ‘most unique’ ensemble will be tapped and awarded a special prize.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit programs at the A.G. Gaston Boys & Girls Club.  Individual tickets ($50) can be purchased by clicking HERE.

See you there!
