The first annual Relay for Life fashion show was conducted last Saturday at the All Saints Episcopal Church in Russellville.

With over 100 people in attendance, Relay for Life was able to raise nearly $3,000.

“We absolutely plan on making this an annual event and look forward to growing it every year,” Charlia Pack, Relay for Life chair, said. “We were at capacity for this year’s space, so we will be in search of a new venue for next year which is so exciting for us.”

There were 19 models of all ages including one young girl who modeled a total of 36 outfits. A majority of the models were cancer survivors. Pack mentioned she would love to see participation from men and boys next year.

The outfits seen on the runway on Saturday were from Cato, Rue 21, Vintage Roots Boutique, Vaqueras, The Other Foot, Leaning Willow, Hipsway Russellville, The Beach Shack, Southern Sassy Boutique, Merle Norman of Atkins and The Crooked Needle.

“It went better than expected for our first fashion show,” Pack said. “We were so blessed to have so many community members come out and support Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society.”

All proceeds go directly to the American Cancer Society.
