Spring is a time of renewal and change — and growth. This year will mark the third annual scholarship fundraiser and silent auction for local nonprofit Restoring Lives. Founder Shenita Jones said the event will kick off at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at American Nation Bank’s Presidential Hall. The silent auction will include items and gift certificates to local businesses and experience packages, like a birthday party with local firefighters.
The fashion show itself will feature clothing from the Queen Me 31 line designed by Ardmore High School graduate Jessyca Williams. Cato and Rue 21 of Ardmore have also offered selections to the show’s models. Hors’ d’oeuvres will be served during the event as well.
Monies raised at the event fund scholarships awarded to Carter County graduating high school seniors and students continuing their education at two- or four-year colleges or vocational programs. Candidates should have a history of volunteerism and participation in non-school and school-related extracurricular activities.
Applicants must provide documentation of a cumulative 2.5 GPA and for seniors, an ACT minimum score of 19. They must also be Oklahoma residents.
The application deadline has been extended to April 27.
All requirements and application information can be found at restoringlivesnow.org. To purchase tickets to the fashion show, contact the organization at (580) 798-3650, or purchase online.
