Cruz Roja Fashion Show August 7

fashion again copy_0.jpgFriday, August 7, 12:00 – 5:00 pm marks the date for Cruz Roja’s 40th Fashion Show and to commemorate this milestone, the fashion show is moving up to the grand ballroom of the Calafia Hotel.

From their first show in 1975, this event has grown to be the most popular fund-raiser for Cruz Roja. Your $20 ticket includes the fashion show and a delightful luncheon. Or you may reserve a table of ten and be assured of sitting with your friends. Tickets are available at the thrift store, (located behind Waldo’s in town), or from any board member.

Entertainment will be provided by master of ceremonies Eddie Alpuche, and relaxing music during lunch performed by Pablo, no last name. (Like there’s only one Pablo in Mexico).

Choice ensembles will be modeled during a runway auction by representatives of several of Rosarito’s service organizations. These clothes, donated by the community, have been lovingly collected and tended to by thrift store volunteers since Christmas.

The most popular part of the event is the boutique, which will be open one hour before and after the fashion show, offering clothing for the entire family, accessories, jewelry, and upscale household items. Shoppers normally stand in line early just to get the best bargains.

All proceeds will go directly to the Cruz Roja hospital of Rosarito and to their ambulance service. Remember, ambulance service to the Cruz Roja hospital is free for members. This is a good deal as trips to the border are discounted from $200 to $100 for the members. We’re not sure what happens if you don’t become a member, if you’re just left in the street to rot, or what, but we’re not interested in finding out.

Tickets are going fast to this popular event, so shake a leg so you don’t get left out.
