Fall Tea and “Fashion on a Budget”

A GALComplete 3 lady photo PR 2015A to remember!  Assistance League of Greater Placer members held their Fall Tea and “Fashions on a Budget” fundraiser this year at the Rocklin Event Center in Rocklin.  Each year in October, this event attracts 400 ladies who, for a few hours, enjoy delicious food and wonderful company and watch a fabulous fashion show.  Guests dress trendy, with some wearing fashionable hats displaying flowers, feathers and lace. Everyone admires the forty uniquely set tables before enjoying a traditional, afternoon tea served by Assistance League members

The “Fashion on a Budget” showcases our members as interim stylish fashion models wearing gently used clothing from our thrift shop.  Excitement ensues when, MC Nancy Tognazzini, begins the show after she gains everyone’s attention with her insightful humor and her gift of engaging an audience.Sea Table complete

Our fashion models show every bit of style and grace showing off their coveted outfits. The stylish clothes are for sale after the fashion show. This fundraiser helps fund our philanthropic programs.

They provided 1,369 children with new clothing and shoes through Operation School Bell®; provided 2,420 children with new backpacks and school supplies; awarded $8,000 for community college scholarships; supplied 2,000 teddy bears to hospitals and California Highway Patrol for traumatized children and enjoyed 1,200 hours visiting senior care residents.
