Walker House thrift shop for United Way a huge success
This year, Walker reinvented its United Way Week event. With ideas and efforts put forth by both this year and last year’s House Council members the house was able to put forth an amazing event. Walker House Thrift Shop fashion show not only raised money for affiliates of United Way, but as well allowed students and teachers to donate clothing towards the charity. With money raised through auctioned items, a thrift shop boutique and food stand, Walker Ladies held their heads high as they felt there deed was done well.
With efforts put forth by all four houses (Walker, Baillie, Colley and Powells) a full fashion show including sixteen models was put on; each model represented their house and their houses clothing line. With a tremendous amount of clothing donated, each house was able to create
exquisite yet tasteful lines. Each model showed off themselves and the one item of clothing that they wished to auction off. With a lively audience, the auctioneer was kept busy. Items went for a various amount of money, skyrocketing to forty-one dollars for a single tank top!
The rest of the donated clothing was displayed in the "thrift shop" where those in attendance had the opportunity to search around and buy articles of clothing. All proceeds from this event were donated to United Way Week.
Members of Walker House would like to thank all those who attended and are proud of each and every Walker girl for their time and
efforts put towards making this all new event a major success!
