The Legacy of Women have scheduled their fall event for Sunday, Oct. 14 from 1–4 p.m. CT at the Knox Middle School. Member Sheri Bartoli says this year’s event is entitled, “Head to Toe,” and several volunteers will have their hair, makeup, and wardrobe made over by professionals.
“We’re actually doing makeovers on Starke County women and they include Kris Arvello, June Binkley, May Crider, Carol Bombagetti and Joan Haugh,” said Bartoli. “We are selling tickets for $8 in advance and they will be available at 1st Source Bank, Demotte State Bank, First National Bank of Monterey and the Starke County Public Library in Knox.”
Overflowing baskets will be available to bid on during the day and Bartoli said the organization won a unique contest in the Oprah magazine called, “100 Women 100 Shoes.” As a result, the Legacy of Women received 100 pairs of Crocs that may be involved in giveaways on Oct. 14.
“It was actually a sweepstakes that was in the magazine back in late spring. We had to write a 500-word essay concerning what our organization was about and what we were going to use the shoes for if we won. We promoted our organization for our community.”
Organizations throughout the United States entered this contest and the Legacy of Women organization in Starke County won.
Legacy of Women helps women and young girls in Starke County become leaders in the community.
