Love on a Hanger and other businesses will feature fall and winter fashions, hair and makeup tutorials in the ninth annual Pretty in Pink Fashion Show on Thursday, Oct. 17.
Silent and live auctions, complimentary desserts and a cash bar are also planned for the event at Four Seasons Greenhouse and Nursery, 6 miles north of Cortez, at 26650 CR P, Dolores. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Cancer Resource Alliance, formerly known as the Women’s Cancer Coalition, Love on a Hanger owner Tiffani Randall said in a news release.
The nonprofit Cancer Resource Alliance provides financial assistance to residents of Montezuma and Dolores counties who have had a recent cancer diagnosis. The Cancer Resource Alliance helps provide free breast and reproductive cancer screenings for women.
“The Pretty in Pink Fashion Show has become an event that we always look forward to each fall, Randall said. “Each year, I am continually in awe of how gracious and giving our community is.”
The Pretty in Pink Fashion Show was started in 2011. Since then it has grown from 50 attendees to over 250 guests.
“As a result of our growth in attendance, a change of venue and format was made,” Randall said. “Over the last eight years, the event has raised in excess of $63,000 to benefit the local organization, allowing hundreds of individuals to receive assistance.”
Last year, the fashion show generated $13,000 for the Cancer Resource Alliance, Randall said, and the alliance has helped more than 40 people gain $500 grants and for cancer screenings.
This year, Randall hopes to raise $15,000.
