Press release:
(September 19, 2015 – Dallas, TX) The 2016 Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Fashion Show & Luncheon titled “Twenty-Five Years of Giving” will be chaired by well-known Dallas community leader, Carmaleta Whiteley, as The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary celebrates its 25th year.

“It is truly an honor to chair this premier event, especially during the Auxiliary’s 25th year,” Carmaleta said. “We are kicking-off on October 1st with a celebration hosted by The Residences at The Stoneleigh where the honorary chairs will be announced and more surprises will be revealed.”

Slated for Monday, May 2, 2016 at the Omni Dallas Hotel, the Fashion Show & Luncheon begins with a reception, silent auction with some one-of-a-kind items and packages exclusive to this event, and shopping in the Chic Boutique, followed by a runway presentation produced by the inimitable Jan Strimple. Ron Corning of WFAA TV Channel 8 will have everyone entertained as the emcee. There will be a presentation and a few surprises mingled in, followed by a fabulous luncheon.

Karen Dealy, president of The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary, encourages everyone to visit the website and discover the many opportunities and benefits of Auxiliary membership. She said, “We support the work of The Salvation Army through many volunteer activities: Back to School, Angel Tree and Kettles at NorthPark, Santa Sacks, and our annual Fashion Show and Luncheon.  The Auxiliary’s community service projects enrich the lives of those less fortunate, from serving meals at Carr P. Collins Social Service Center to celebrating sobriety at the Adult Rehabilitation Center.  Our volunteer efforts support the Community Centers of the Army who provide a variety of services to help those in need in their communities: children, teens, adults, seniors and the ill.”

Fashion Show & Luncheon sponsorships and underwriting are available. Tickets begin with a limited number available at $250. Then tickets begin at $500.

The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church.  Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God.
