Fashion show April 20 to benefit crisis center

The Northwest Georgia Family Crisis Center Board of Directors announces the 6th Annual Spring Fashion Show. The event includes a luncheon, a show of spring fashions, door prizes and a silent auction. Proceeds will benefit the Crisis Center.  

The event is slated for Saturday, April 20, starting at 11:30 a.m. The venue is Walnut Hill Farm on Lee Bryant Road, off Highway 2 east of Prater’s Mill.

Walnut Hill Farm is a perfect venue for a spring event with a splendid panoramic view, together with the farm’s beautiful formal and informal gardens. Nanette and Joe Yarbrough, owners of Walnut Hill Farm, generously donated the facility for the event.

Fashion show coordinator Pam Hogan said, “Nanette is wonderful; she pays attention to every level of detail and works hard to ensure that events at Walnut Hill Farm are an exceptional experience.” Addition-ally, the Dalton Business and Professional Women’s organization and T.J. Kaikobad of the Dalton Depot are enthusiastically contributing their time and effort to the event’s success.

Spring fashions will be provided by stores in both the Dalton and Calhoun communities. Participating stores include Belk at Walnut Square Mall, House of Beauty on Dug Gap Road,  Kohl’s on Shugart Road, Sweet Cheeks on Hamilton Street, Cotton & Twine on West Waugh Street and Unique Selections on Gordon Street. Stores from the Calhoun/Gordon County area include  Biddy Boutique on Court Street, Reese’s Fashion Gallery in the Gordon Hills Shopping Center and The Fitting Room on Belwood Road.

Board member Anita Thornton said, “We are so excited and grateful to these businesses for their willingness to support this event.” Board member Jennifer Dixon and the Mary Kay Cosmetic team will provide make-up fashion trends showcased by the models.

The board currently is seeking community support for the event in the form of sponsorships and door prize donations. Board member Lisa Painter said, “This year we are seeking table sponsors at the $500 level, which includes 10 event tickets.”

The Crisis Center is a nonprofit provider; therefore, all donations are tax-deductible. All donors and sponsors will be recognized in the event program.

  • Bryan Collins: Men, step up

    On Sunday, our nation will celebrate Father’s Day. The observable differences in the way Father’s Day and Mother’s Day are celebrated could be attributed to several different factors.  Mother’s Day is typically a more sentimental occasion than Father’s Day because our moms are usually a little more sentimental. Moms are typically more nurturing and so we think of them differently than we think of our dads. It is too often the case that moms have to play the role of mother and father to the children.
