United Way changes venue for upcoming fashion show

WEIRTON – Officials with the Weirton United Way continue to plan the organization’s upcoming fashion show fundraiser event, including a change in location.

The annual event is set for 2 p.m. May 19, but will now take place at the Serbian-American Cultural Center.

The 2013 Fashion Show will include a dinner for those in attendance in addition to the show itself.

“Anna-Kay’s will be doing the modeling,” United Way Executive Director Kristin Bowman-Cross said.

Among those local businesses showing their support for the event is First Choice America Community Federal Credit Union, which will serve as the runway sponsor.

“This has been our 10th year,” First Choice President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Winwood said. “We’re glad to support the Weirton United Way.”

Bowman-Cross explained there also will be an auction and a few other attractions during the event.

“We’re going to be adding a few surprises,” Bowman-Cross said.

Tickets for the fashion show are $30 each and can be purchased either at the Weirton United Way office, 3205 B Pennsylvania Ave., or from a committee member.

Tickets will not be available at the door.
