Style In Action Spring Fashion Show Benefits Meals on Wheels
MARBLE FALLS — The annual Style In Action fashion show is taking action to make sure homebound seniors receive hot meals.
The luncheon and spring style show benefiting the local Meals on Wheels is 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, at Lakeside Pavilion, 307 Buena Vista Drive. Tickets are $40 and can be purchased at the boutiques providing the fashions for the show: Ciao Bella, Salem’s Fashions, Madlyn’s, Creations by Diana, and Accents Boutique & Merle Norman, all in Marble Falls. You can also purchase your ticket on the local Meals on Wheels website by clicking on the “Donate” button.
The boutiques will bring a wide range of fashions in various colors and sizes and for different age groups. You can receive a discount by purchasing clothes at the show.
“(The fashion show) provides additional funding we need to keep the costs low for participants that receive the meals,” event chairwoman Kelly Dix said.
The local Meals on Wheels, which serves homebound residents 60 years or older, is part of Opportunities for Williamson and Burnet Counties.
Lunch at the event is being served by the award-winning Burnet High School culinary arts department. The students are known as the Iron Dawgs. The meal includes an entree and a dessert.
“This is the second year they’re doing it,” Dix said about the young chefs. “They do a phenomenal job.”
In addition to a silent auction, Burnet Middle School students turned donated pots from Pottery Ranch into creative centerpieces for the tables. The pots will be raffled off during the event.
“They look great,” Dix said about the centerpieces. “We’re real excited to see it come together.”
Meals on Wheels is funded through two community development block grants. States and cities receive those grants from the federal government to help fight poverty. Those block grants fund 60 percent of the meals.
