Planning is underway for The Traveling Little Black Dress Fashion Show & Luncheon, an annual spring fundraiser for the Seneca County House of Concern.
The creator of the show, Sharon Hoatland, brought the idea to the Board of Directors in 2012, with the first annual event being held in May of 2013. Since its inception, this annual event has been a significant fundraiser to keep the food pantry stocked and operational assisting those in Seneca County with food insecurity. It has exceeded a grand total of $60,000.00 in funding over five years.
The sixth annual fashion show and luncheon, titled The Traveling Little Black Dress… “goes Disco”, is traveling again and will be held on Friday, April 20th and Saturday, April 21st, 2018 at the Seneca Falls Country Club, 2790 State Route 89.
The fun will begin at 11:00 a.m. with raffles and shopping opportunities provided by local businesses. At 11:30 the doors will open, and attendees will be served lunch and treated to another delightful show. Every year the fashion show not only features models who are friends, business colleagues and neighbors, it highlights outfits and accessories from local retailers. And there is always some fun and shenanigans while the models “strut their stuff”.
Tickets for the event are open seating at $40.00 each. Save by purchasing two or more for $35.00 each. Reserved seating will be only for tables of 8 at $260.00 per table. Get your family, friends or co-workers together and reserve a table. Tickets can be purchased by calling Susan at (315)730-4975, at The Copy Shop and Bee’s Cookies & Cakes, both located on Fall Street in Seneca Falls, or on the website:
This year, the Seneca County House of Concern celebrates its 49th year in service to Seneca County. The organization’s primary goal at inception was to help neighbors in need, and that continues to be its goal today. Unfortunately, the need continues with the organization providing food for an average of 450 families every month.
Remember, when you support The Traveling Little Black Dress Fashion Show, you are helping to feed the hungry in Seneca County.
We hope to see you at the show!
