Over 30 models, men, women and youngsters, plus three local families, delighted the audience with casual, sports, business and special occasion outfits from Princes Department Store, Boutique De Sonia and Vicki’s Unique Boutique.
All tickets were sold out by mid-April and use of the restaurant was arranged by owner Ken Neal. In keeping with its theme of “We’re stepping out,” table centerpieces were outrageously fashionable high-heeled shoes. Lavender sachet gifts were provided for the diners in keeping with the fashion color motif of lavender and white. Room decorations were created by Hilary Blackler with Marie Jordan. Organizers were Margo Carroll, Chairperson, Joyce Forthun and Jan Newman, Co-chairperson. More than 25 volunteers from Oroville, Tonasket and Molson helped create the occasion. NVCS provides adult enrichment classes in Oroville for adults from the surrounding communities.
A three-course luncheon was prepared by Linda Darrow of Linda’s Bakery and an original framed painting donated by Jim Weaver was raffled throughout the communities as well as at the luncheon. It was won by Shirley Roberts of Oroville.
This fashion event is planned as North Valley Community Schools’ major annual fund raiser.
