(Nov. 23, 2018) Tickets are still available for the 29th annual American Cancer Society “Holiday Wrappings” Fashion Show and Luncheon on Tuesday, Dec. 4.
Sponsored by the John H. “Jack” Burbage Regional Cancer Center and Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute, the luncheon and fashion show event will be held at the Ocean City convention center on 40th Street from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Tickets cost $45 per person or $450 per table of 10. The deadline to RSVP for the event was originally Tuesday, Nov. 20, but was extended through the end of the weekend, with the new deadline on Monday, Nov. 26. Tickets purchased after Tuesday will cost an additional $5.
Last year, 840 guests attended and raised about $65,000.
“The size of this event has gotten so big,” event promoter Dawne Pappas said. “Everybody works so hard and well together.”
Chinese and silent auctions will kick off the event from 10:30 a.m. until 12 p.m. A hot lunch will be served immediately after. Music will be provided by Lauren Glick.
The fashion show will begin at 1 p.m. and is scheduled to last 40 minutes. The event, organized by CraZy LadyZ! owner Jan Patterson, will feature clothing from 13 local shops and boutiques in Ocean City and Berlin, in addition to Ocean View and Lewes, Delaware.
A range of clothing for children, teens, men, women and pets will be on display.
“It’s a great organization,” Pappas said. “It supports the American Cancer Society and supports all cancers, not just breast cancer. Also, it’s a great place to network and start the holidays off.”
For $10, attendees can participate in a cupcake raffle, where they will choose a treat courtesy of Miss Patty Cake in Berlin that will have either a $10, $25, $50 or $100 gift card from Park Place Jewelers.
There will also be a spirit table with wine and flavored vodka, which can be purchased for a $20 donation. The Art League of Ocean City will also have a table set up with artwork donated by local artists for purchase.
