Glam Ladies Night Out with Fun, Food, Fashion and Fundraising

Oct 19, 2013 6:00pm - 9:00pm

Garner TV & Appliance, one of the largest independent appliance dealers on the East coast, and Alossi Renewal Spa are co-hosting the first ever "Glam Ladies Night Out with Fun, Food, Fashion and Fundraising" featuring local celebrity models to benefit the Backpack Buddies program in Garner area schools. The event is Oct. 19, 6:00-9:00pm at the Garner TV & Appliance.

The event brings together many community businesses to help the Backpack Buddies Program for Garner area schools. The BackPack Buddies Program provides children from food-insecure homes with weekend meals during the school year. The Garner Mid-Day Rotary Club, Lord of Life Lutheran Church of Garner and local volunteers help raise money and pack bags with kid-friendly non-perishable food. The children receive a backpack containing balanced meals and healthy snacks at the end of every week. The cost to fund one child for the school year is $325.00.     

Mix 101.5's Lynda Loveland will serve as emcee for the event. The fashion show will feature the latest evening fashion provided by Dress Barn and Kennedy & Grace worn by celebrity models including: WRAL TV-5's Michelle Marsh, WTVD-11 anchor Angelica Alvarez, the current Miss Garner Dominique Alston and some of Garner's finest women. The models will show the latest hair styles provided by Studio 121 and their make-up will be done by Alossi Renewal Spa.   Garner Firemen will be clad in the hottest tuxes from VIP Formal Wear escorting our models down the runway.

The event is a kickoff to Garner Mid-Day Rotary Club's Black, White and Bling Gala held November 16th that also benefits the Backpack Buddies program in Garner. The hope is to raise enough money with both these events to be sure every child that needs to be in the program will be sponsored. The idea of the Ladies Night Out event is to feature hot styles in the fashion show that might be worn to the Rotary Club gala or during the holiday season.

Tickets are $25 and include food and one adult beverage. Participating restaurants include Aversboro Restaurant, Angie's, Moon Runners, Ragazzi's, The Pizza Pit inside Rushhour Karting, Alaksha's Catering, Logans and desserts from Togamay and McDonalds. Aversboro Coffee and Juiced Up will also be here with beverages. The event will also feature a large oversized backpack constructed out of appliance boxes by a local high school art student.  Area businessTeresa's Bling will be at the event selling the hottest "bling" with a portion of sales going to our cause. Tickets may be purchased at Garner TV & Appliance and Alossi Renewal Spa.
