The First Presbyterian Church will hold its annual luncheon and style show at 11:30 a.m. Saturday at the church, 220 N. Second Ave. E. Access to an elevator is available at the west door of the church, using the alley between the Presbyterian church and the First United Methodist Church.
Local models will showcase the fall fashions from The Hall Tree store, located in Pella and Urbandale. A featured model will be Gladys Sparks, who turned 95 this year. Sparks has been a regular model at the event.
The luncheon will be a plated, sit-down meal prepared and served by members of the church. Seating is limited to 85, with tickets costing $20 each. Tickets may be obtained by calling Mickey Van Baale at 641-521-0549.
Following the luncheon and style show, a drawing will be done for a gift certificate from The Hall Tree. There will also be fashions from The Hall Tree available in a variety sizes for ladies to look at, try on and make on-site purchases, at a 20 percent discount.
Proceeds from ticket sales will go to two different mission projects. A portion will go to hurricane and other natural disasters relief, through the national PDA (Presbyterian Disaster Assistance) fund. The remaining funds will go toward the church’s Ramp Building Ministry. The newly formed ministry is to help low-income people with mobility issues in Jasper County and surrounding counties. This is being done in partnership with Kid Assist and ACTS (A Call to Serve) of Iowa.
