Vintage fashion show set for Saturday

The community is invited to join the American Legion Auxiliary Frank Gallino Unit 130 from 11:30 a.m. -2:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Grass Valley Veterans Building, 255 South Auburn St., Grass Valley, for “A Vintage Fashion Show and Luncheon.”

Since 1961, a group of United Methodist women have collected several hundred garments dating from 1840 to the present day.

Twelve volunteer-women of all ages will model 36 of these clothes from bustles to high lace-up shoes.

The commentary running through the whole show will be educational, entertaining and hilarious, as models move through the auditorium, event organizers said in a media release.

Frank Gallino Unit 130 has enlisted this unusual group to highlight its spring fundraiser that supports the many programs assisting veterans and their families, and the youths of Nevada County.

Organizers said guests will enjoy a luncheon of chicken, Caesar salad, rolls and dessert, a no-host wine bar, and raffle prizes.

Raffle prizes feature a handmade quilt, a variety of theme baskets and other gifts.

The Grass Valley Veterans Building will be decorated with vintage clothing and floral ornaments for the event by Linda Watson and her committee.

Organizers said tables for groups may be reserved at time of ticket purchase, adding that daughters and granddaughters are welcome to participate in this fundraising event.

Tickets are available from Janet Hessel at 530-432-0425, Julie Slate, 916-735-5199, or any Auxiliary member.

Tickets to the fashion show are $25, $10 for children younger than 12.
