Fashions, food and fun — all for a good cause. That’s what the Rim Country Optimist Club Falling Leaves Fashioneesta event is all about.
This is a cooperative effort between the Optimist Club, Payson Assisting Displaced Students (PADS), local Girl Scouts and the individual and business sponsors.
Most of the proceeds will be given to PADS, which helps to provide food, clothing, shoes, transportation to tutorial classes and the doctor, plus paying for medical needs, etc. A smaller portion will be used to buy items of clothing to include in Christmas boxes for youth in need.
The only way to describe the Falling Leaves Fashioneesta extravaganza is “elegant.” From beginning to end, your senses will be delighted. A tasteful luncheon, served by local Girl Scouts, will please your palate. The table decorations will be unique and lovely with some becoming door prizes.
Both The Boutique and Bob’s Western Wear will be displaying the latest fashions. The models will range in age from high school through senior citizen. The male models, which are the newest addition to this event, will add to the charm and fun of the day.
Music will be provided by Fred Carpenter.
There will be a multitude of exciting, individual raffled items and silent auction baskets for one and all to try and obtain.
The Fashioneesta will take place Saturday, Nov. 9 at Payson Senior Center, 512 W. Main St. Doors open at 11 a.m.
