Fun times, and a worthy cause

Wearing designer clothes from West County Center, about 60 models will walk the runway at the annual fashion show and luncheon fundraiser to benefit the Rural Parish Workers of Christ the King.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary for the "Friends" of the ministry, the fashion show is slated for Friday, Oct. 13, at the Ritz-Carlton in Clayton, with the festivities kicking off with the Boutiques at 10 a.m.

According to Vicki Messmer, a co-chair of the fashion show, the models range in age from from 5 years old to 75 years young, with multiple wardrobe changes for some models.
