The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary of Washington 67th Annual Fashion Show, Luncheon and Auction is this Friday, October 28 at the Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner beginning with a silent auction and reception at 10:00AM and a program at 12:00PM. The all-volunteer group of women have raised well over $600,000 in proceeds over the past six years to help young homeless mothers and their children at The Salvation Army’s local transitional housing center, and send kids the Camp Happyland each summer.
The Women’s Auxiliary of Washington’s 67th Annual Fashion Show, Luncheon and Auction brings Washington society together with a common cause of making a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.
This year, 600 women and men from across the DC Metro area are expected to be in attendance for the Women’s Auxiliary main annual fundraising event. Upscale retailer Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons will provide this year’s runway show featuring styles from their private label, The Saks Fifth Avenue Collection.
Proceeds from the Women’s Auxiliary of Washington’s annual signature fundraising event will support the Turning Point Center for Women and Children, a transitional housing program open to women between ages 18 to 28. Turning Point helps previously homeless mothers and their families by providing them a safe place to live, independent living skills classes, ongoing case management, and much-needed guidance as they work toward the goal of independent living.
The proceeds will also help to send local kids to The Salvation Army’s Camp Happyland, a 220-acre residential camp located 90 minutes from the nation’s capital in rural Virginia. Camp Happyland is a haven away from the inner city that allows teens to enjoy nature, sports, and recreational activities while developing new skills, make new friends, and create memories that last a lifetime.
