Fashionable fun benefits Crossroads
Barren & Metcalfe
November is the month of Thanksgiving, and Crossroads Life Center is thankful for their new portable ultrasound machine, made possible by the efforts of local ladies who teamed up for some fashionable fun at The Autumn Fashion Show.
The show, held November 4, was to benefit Crossroads Life Center and to facilitate the purchase of the ultrasound machine.
The event was hosted by Cherie Vaughn at Main Street Bed & Breakfast, Veronika Wells with Vintique on the Square, and brand partners Young Living, Chelene Nightingale, and Chantal Honeycutt.
Crossroads Life Center in Glasgow offers free pregnancy testing, parenting classes, individual and group support for post-abortion, and sexual abuse recovery, and more. Chelene, Chantal Honeycutt, Cherie Vaughn, and Veronika Wells realized the need and came together to help in trying to raise the money to achieve this goal, after new information regarding a portable ultrasound machine came to light, and made the possibility much more affordable.
The event included speaker Teresa Purichia with Crossroads Life Center, vocal performers, Brooke Honeycutt and Natalie Dyer with Bethann Payne playing keyboard, violin performance by Sidnie Dickison, silent auction, fashion show items by Vintique, makeup by Chantal Honeycutt, hor d’oeuvres, and mulled cider wine. The ticket cost was $30 with limited seating.
“The apparel was a wide range from vintage styles to modern, from casual wear to formal, and in all sizes for all age ranges. Modeling the outfits were Brooke Honeycutt, Natalie Dyer, Marissa Borders, Erica Spillman, Heather Berube, Jackie Wells, and Edie Bell,” said Wells, of Vintique.
“It was a very touching event, and I was honored to be a part of it. The performers were amazing and the models had a ton of fun. It was just a wonderful night for a wonderful cause,” added Wells.
The portable machine costs approximately $2,500 and the event was able to raise $1,600 toward this goal. The ladies plan to make it a two-time-a-year event, with Spring and Autumn Fashion shows to benefit the center and heighten awareness.
