"Strawberry Splash" is Theme for Concordia Annual Fashion Show

Cabot, PA - The Fifth Annual Concordia Lutheran Ministries Fashion Show is scheduled for Saturday, May 15 at Butler Country Club off Route 8 North.

A basket auction will follow the full-course lunch. The day will be highlighted by "Fashions by Phyllis" and guests will have the opportunity to purchase attire and accessories.

Themed "Strawberry Splash" in honor of what is becoming our signature soup, the Fashion Show begins at 10:30 a.m. with registration, the basket auction and clothes shopping, followed by lunch at 11:45 a.m. "Fashions by Phyllis" will be shown at 1:15 p.m. "Fashions by Phyllis" retail stores are located in Bellevue and the Meadow Lands.    

Tickets are $25. Please call the public relations office at Concordia at 724.352.1571, ext. 8266 to make your reservations.  Due to limited seating (maximum 300), the deadline for reservations is May 7. No tickets will be sold at the door. 

Please make event checks payable to Concordia Lutheran Ministries and send to Concordia Lutheran Ministries, attn: Public Relations Office: 148 Marwood Road, Cabot, PA 16023. 

All proceeds will be donated to the Good Samaritan Endowment Fund. Concordia Lutheran Ministries cares for residents each year who do not have sufficient resources to pay the full cost of their care. In skilled nursing, the Pennsylvania Medical Assistance Program pays for most, but not all, of the care of residents without funds. In Assisted Living, however, there are no government programs to cover the shortfall between residents' resources and cost of care. Established in the early 1990s, the Good Samaritan Endowment Fund provides Concordia with additional funds to help meet obligations of the organization.

Another connected fundraiser will be held at Haven I retirement apartments prior to the May 15 event. A Basket Auction Preview will be held on Thursday and Friday, May 13 and 14. All are invited to purchase advance tickets for the basket drawing. All are also invited to donate a theme basket.
