The first ever Winter Fashion Show was hosted by the band at Lisbon’s auditorium on Saturday, November 16th. The decorations included snowflake cutouts, glitter and imitation snow; it was like walking into a winter wonderland. Paparazzi Jewelry, Premier Designs Jewelry, Scarf Party, Organic Owl, and Thirty- One Gifts were some of the many businesses that came to support our Blue Pride Band. There were door prizes donated by these businesses and a Chinese auction.
The models all looked great in their gowns, casual wear and outdoor wear. Band members who modeled were Courtney Tolson, Julie Muntean, Kaitlyn Gorby, Skylar Wiggers, Anne Cushman, Taylor Halstead, Ashley Hawkins, Payden Chapman, Tom Kibler, Lucas Clemens, Kaleb Pickens and Chris Dantona. Make-up and hair design was provided by Danyail Hayko. Julie Munteen said her favorite part “was walking on stage and having everyone see the beautiful dress I was wearing.”
The local businesses that provided clothes to be modeled were Fashion Forward, Tiny Tots, Dashing Divas and Orca. There were many supporters and contributors to the event on stage and behind the curtains. The band exceeded their goal of $4,000, which will be used to buy new uniforms. The boosters and parents did a wonderful job of organizing the event.
