The Women’s Auxiliary of The Salvation Army of Galveston County will present its Runway of Hope Style Show and Luncheon at 11 a.m. Friday in the grand ballroom of The San Luis Resort at 5222 Seawall Blvd., in Galveston.
The event, which will honor Carol Greaney-Wurst, also will feature fashions put together by Blu Boutique.
Professional models will be joined by well-known local community supporters Brenda Weber, Chris Kinard, Becky Trout, Doreen Hughes and Vivian Hernandez. Gina Spagnola will emcee the event.
“I’m thrilled to be involved in this great community event,” said Michelle Robach, owner of Blu Boutique and producer of the style show. “I have selected several fashions including accessories that will represent all the special occasions and fun events women attend throughout the year. Everyone will get some great fashion ideas for their next special event or outing.”
Carol Greaney-Wurst will receive the Champion of Hope Award from The Salvation Army for her lifetime of work in Galveston County. Greaney-Wurst raised six children as a single mother while teaching school and selling ice machines on the side. She taught at Ball High School for more than 20 years, an experience that propelled her to run for, and win, a spot on the Galveston Independent School District school board where she served for nine years. She built a successful business selling ice machines and other kitchen equipment all while staying involved in education and other community organizations.
Donations of gently used or new high-end fashions are still being accepted for the Closet of Hope. Items can be dropped off at 601 51st St., in Galveston (marked to the attention of the style show).
