Angela An to be Emcee for The Lighthouse 13th Annual Style Show and Luncheon.
Emmy Award-Winning journalist and Co-Anchor Angela An will be the 2019 Emcee for the 13th Annual Lighthouse Domestic Violence Shelter Spring Luncheon and Style Show on Saturday, March 2 from 12-2 pm at the Lancaster Country Club. Tickets are on sale now! The Lighthouse Shelter has been helping victims of domestic violence in this area for more than thirty-five years – providing a safe haven, assisting with filing protective orders, court advocates, and partnering with The Recovery Center to provide counseling. On March 2, 2019, the Lighthouse Domestic Violence Shelter will host the 13th Annual Spring Style Show and Luncheon. The Lighthouse Board of Directors and staff invite the community to preview beautiful spring fashions from local fashion boutiques and to enjoy the lastest fashion looks and accessories from Christopher Banks, CJ Banks, Kohls, JCPenney, and other area dress shops.
“We have a few changes this year – by moving to Crossroads Event Center on Fair Avenue, we can have more people and no parking problems. Our Style Show is a great opportunity to spend a fun Girls’ Day with family and friends,” says Sally Spangler, Lighthouse Board Vice-President and Style Show Organizer. “There will be basket raffles, the latest fashions, and a good time for all – and at the same time helping victims of domestic violence through your donation.”
The Style Show has many local sponsors and contributors to make the event a success. Pamela Kaylor, Board President says, “The doors open at 11 a.m. Most of the women who attend each year come early to participate in the basket raffles. Each year we have beautiful, creative baskets to raffle – there is something for everyone. We have so much community participation – our models may be someone you know. And we are very pleased to have Angela An with us again this year.”
This will be the first Spring Style Show Fundraiser for new Executive Director Susan Nixon Stoughton. This is a chance for the community to take a stand against family violence in our area, to support The Lighthouse, and to meet the director.
