The Alliance Recreation Center held is annual fundraiser on September 21, at the Eagles club. The theme for this years event was Catwalk and Cocktails. Event goers started of the evening with a cocktail hour paired with a variety of appetizers including a towering queso fountain and then the fun began.
Emcee Madam Nymphadora took the stage to start off the fashion show and introduced each model as they strutted their stuff across the stage. She also entertained the crowd with a few songs throughout the evening. Community members acted as the models on display for a great cause, the support of the fantastic programs at the Alliance Recreation Center.
“Our Catwalk & Cocktails fundraiser was so much fun! Thanks to our sponsors in Parker, Westco, Dairy Queen, Bernie’s Hardware, and First National Bank along with everyone who purchased a ticket, raised over $8,000 towards our Financial Aid Fund. This fund helps us never turn any community member away based on their ability to pay. From programs like ARC After School and Full-Day Summer Camp to flag football, KinderGym, and memberships to this facility, we welcome community members from all walks of life,” stated Alliance Recreation Center, Executive Director, Mara Andersen.
“The event itself was a lot of fun. From a dancing t-rex, to an eye ball, a lineman crew and Dobby's Frontier Town, we had 20 modeling groups and the audience laughed about every second of the show. It was entertaining and an awesome way for people, both models and audience members to support the ARC while having a fun and unique night on the town,” stated Andersen.
