It was a busy weekend at Concordia Lutheran Ministries - we had a Concordia Haven Apartments open house and, of course, our annual Fashion Show fundraiser on back-to-back days! A huge thank you to all those involved and the many smiling faces who attended one or both events.
Below are some pictures from the Fashion Show, which, for the first time, featured models from the Concordia family: staff, residents and a few friends of the organization. Another special part of this year's event was a tribute to Edie Waltenbaugh, a Haven resident who was actively involved with planning and carrying out previous Fashion Shows. Edie passed away in January.
The event, held at the Butler Country Club, was attended by over 300 people, which marks the first ever sell out. There were 55 gift baskets won as well. While we don't have to total amount of money raised yet, all proceeds went to the Good Samaritan Endowment Fund, Concordia's charity care fund.
Take a look at the pictures below and leave some comments! Oh, and don't forget, Mother's Day is this Sunday, May 13. Take some time to visit mom and tell her you love her. If mom's getting up in age, check out this blog post from last year on gift ideas!
