CCAC Fall Fashion Show at Hand

Thursday, October 10, 2013
Paula O. Blackwell and Cody Knight, of Piggott State Bank, show off the silver serving tray the bank has donated as a door prize for the upcoming Clay County Arts Council fashion show.

The Clay County Arts Council will begin its 14th season with style Oct. 24 with a Fall Fashion Show at the Sugar Creek Country Club in Piggott. The evening will include dinner prepared by the Sugar Creek Country Club, a fashion show by apparel merchants from Piggott, Rector and Corning and a silent auction.

The latest fashions available at local businesses will be modeled by area women and young ladies in preparation for the upcoming holiday season. The lovely participants will give those in attendance the opportunity to see the latest trends come to life. Makeup for the models will be provided by Merle Norman of Piggott.

The popular silent auction will return for the evening's events. Members and guests will be able to bid on various items ranging from original art to gift certificates, all provided by area businesses and sponsors. The silent auction benefits area students through the CCAC's scholarship program.

The evening will also feature outstanding door prizes. One such prize, a photo of which accompanies this article, is a large serving tray provided by Piggott State Bank. The tray, an Arthur Court Designs limited piece, has a retail value of $295.

Tickets for this holiday gala are $20 for members and $25 for non-members. Tickets are on sale at Feather Your Nest and Vintage Palooza in Piggott and Honeysuckle & Home and Front Street Finds in Rector.

The evening will feature a holiday theme and merchants are invited sponsor a table to showcase their wares and advertise their business.

The Clay County Arts Council, Inc., founded by Gail Burns in 1999, has maintained a steadily increasing presence in the community for the past 14 years. The Clay County Arts Council is committed to conducting combined fundraising for the organization, presenting the arts in area schools, developing proprietary arts experiences and acting as a clearing house for the arts.

At a time when funding for the arts is difficult to find, the CCAC strives to find ways to fill the gap and encourage participation in any and all forms of art and in art appreciation.

With grants to participating art teachers, cash prizes to winners of art competition and scholarships to qualifying students, the CCAC encourages and rewards talented students and dedicated teachers and increases their opportunities. CCAC celebrations and productions provide entertainment for the community and showcases the talents and dreams of the performers.
