It is time again for The Traveling Little Black Dress to liven things up in Seneca County! The fifth annual fashion show and luncheon, titled The Traveling Little Black Dress… “Has Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, will occur on Friday, April 7th and Saturday, April 8th at 11:00 a.m. at the Holiday Inn Waterloo (Seneca Falls). This is a change in location due to the growth of this exciting event along with the growth in need in our communities. Changing venues will allow for more room for guests to mingle and for models to work the crowd with a good view from every seat. The staff at the Holiday Inn promise to make this equal to “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”!
The fun begins at 11:00 a.m. with raffles and shopping opportunities provided by local businesses. At 11:30 the doors will open and guests will be escorted to their reserved seats, as the music and fashion show begin. Attendees will have a choice of three delicious entrees along with a special dessert while being treated to another delightful show created by the amazing Sharon Hoatland. Local friends, business colleagues and neighbors will be featured models “strutting their stuff”, wearing lovely outfits from local retailers and entertaining attendees with some fun and shenanigans.
Tickets for the event are $35.00 each or save by purchasing two for $60.00. Tickets can be purchased by calling (315)730-4975 or at the Seneca County House of Concern website www.houseofconcern.org.
In January of this year the Seneca County House of Concern celebrated its 48th year in service to Seneca County. The organization’s primary goal at inception was to help neighbors in need, and that continues to be its goal today. The non-profit organization is a food pantry, a clothing closet, a referral agency, and a safe place for people to come when they find themselves facing the sometimes difficult challenges that life can bring – a place that feeds minds with knowledge, stomachs with food, and hearts with hope.
Unfortunately, the need continues with the organization providing food for an average of 450 families every month! To help meet this demand the fashion show and luncheon has become the primary fundraiser each spring. The first year of the show, 2013, raised over $9,000 for the food pantry. Last year the amount was over $15,000. They are hoping to raise that total yet again this year.
Remember, when you support The Traveling Little Black Dress Fashion Show, you are helping to feed the hungry in Seneca County.
