Proceeds from the fashion show, along with a silent auction and lunch, went to support the auxiliary’s veterans programs as well as youth activities, such as Voice of Democracy, Patriot’s Pen and Patriotic Arts contests, and senior citizen lunches.

In addition, a sale of jewelry and donated purses, the latter ranging in price from $1 to $7, went to cancer aid and research programs.

Models for the style show were Brenda Jones, Diane Bohlman, Donna Guenther, Susan Larson, Lola Halseth, Mary Hawkins, Sue Geisler, Tammy Ybarra and Teresa Jerome.

Fashions and accessories were provided by Christopher & Banks and CJ Banks.

Besides the silent auctions and jewelry and purses for sale, there was a quilt raffle for a quilt donated by Coon Rapids VFW Ladies Auxiliary member Judy Roepke.

Members of the Coon Rapids VFW Men’s Auxiliary served the food and waited tables.
