The Soroptimist International of Alhambra, San Gabriel, San Marino Holiday Fashion Show will take place Sunday, Nov. 22, at Almansor Court, 700 S. Almansor St., Alhambra. In years past, this event has enticed more than 300 guests to start their holiday gift shopping by taking advantage of more than 40 creatively assembled silent auction baskets as well as shopping at the clothing and jewelry vendor areas, all while enjoying lunch and a fashion show.
Shopping begins as early as 11 a.m. with the luncheon beginning promptly at noon, followed immediately by the fashion show. Opportunity Drawing tickets will be available for three prizes: fi rst prize, $500 cash; second prize, $200 gift card from J. McLaughlin Boutique; and third prize, a holiday gift basket. Chances for additional prizes will be available as more than 70 door prizes will be given away to lucky ticket holders throughout the event.
“And let’s not forget about the fabulous Live Auction items that will be available,” said Soroptimist President Cynthia Jarvis. “Former Alhambra Mayor Mark Paulson will act as auctioneer extraordinaire and is sure to entice you with a variety of wonderful items that in the past have included tickets to sporting events, theme parks, and even a week-end get-away.”
Fashion show coordinator Jacqueline Coulette announced that this year’s fashions will be provided by designer boutiques in the San Marino Mission district, including Posh Boutique, J McLaughlin and Jarbo, to name a few. “Th e fashions will be of the highest quality and will be presented on the runway by professional models of the highest caliber,” she said.
Individual tickets are just $45 per person. Purchase a full table for 10 and receive a business card size ad or $50 credit toward a half-page ad in the souvenir program book, distributed to every event attendee.
