The unusually snowy winter helped fuel anticipation of the fashion event of the year – PJ’s Benefit Fashion Show presented by The Foxy Ladies Luncheon Club. In the Red Fox Country Club dining room, the climate was balmy on this early February day as eight models flaunted PJ’s Fashion finery to the delight of a sold out crowd.

Under the careful direction of PJ, models underwent several outfit changes with the ease of seasoned professionals as the popular social event – intended to jumpstart the spring season – proceeded without a hitch. Following PJ’s warm-weather fashion preview, a buffet lunch was served.

As with previous years, proceeds from the Fashion Show were donated to Steps to HOPE – Polk County’s domestic violence and sexual assault prevention and treatment center. With the negative impact of recent budget cuts on domestic violence programs, Steps to HOPE depends more heavily than ever upon donations from the community to keep its doors open.
