A total of 100 guests filled the tables at Brookings Presbyterian Church for fashion show.
More than 100 guests filled the Brookings Presbyterian Church fellowship hall for the Soroptimist Downtown Abbey Tea and Fashion Show.
The annual event was a fundraiser for Soroptimist scholarships. Fashions were provided by CC’s Clothes for Cancer.
The hats worn by the women looked as if they had stepped out of 18th and 19th century. Many of the hats and gowns took people back to the “good ol’ days,” according to Marie Garcia, publicist for Soroptimist International of Brookings.
Two days before Super Bowl XLIX, the American Cancer Society fielded a kickoff event for the 2015 Curry County Relay for Life.
Cheering on the theme, “Go! Fight! Win!” the teams began to form during the event Friday night at Brookings-Harbor High School.
“We signed up two new teams and had a lot of people excited about our 2015 Relay,” said Bonnie Ell, American Cancer Society staff partner.
The event included a chili cook-off, a dessert auction and a movie night featuring the 1993 film “The Sandlot.” In addition, both mother and daughter, Kim and Kelly Scruggs, donated hair to make wigs for cancer patients.
