Spring fashion takes center stage for a good cause in Le Mars, IA
LE MARS, Iowa (KTIV) -
With Spring just a few days away, you may already be thinking about next season's wardrobe.
And, that's definitely true for about 300 women in Northwest Iowa, who got a first look at some "hot" trends for Spring.
They also heard from a motivational speaker and got the chance to place their bids at the silent auction, all while supporting a good cause.
The 8th annual "Power of Your Purse Spring Fling Brunch and Style Show" benefits the Good Samaritan Society in Le Mars.
Organizers said the event has grown tremendously since it first started.
They have almost doubled the attendance rate and raised about $15,000 dollars from Saturday's event.
"Every year has been just a little better in attendance and more special. And, I think it's just because we've taken it to a level where we are lifting women up and bringing them to light, and making it a fun morning, and knowing that they are helping out while they're here," Event Organizer Amy Harnack said.
