“It’s always a delightful afternoon, with a delicious lunch and chance to socialize and win prizes, all the while supporting Zonta’s work to empower women and help the community,” said Zonta President Karen Keefe.

There will be a theme basket raffle, money tree and a special raffle of many valuable items donated by area businesses.

The fashion show is the major fundraiser for Zonta, which will be awarding scholarships this June to four Grand Island women. To date, the club has awarded more than $120,000 in scholarships to local women. The success of the fashion show helps ensure that the scholarships will continue to be funded, as women continue helping other women in the community.

Zonta is a leading global organization of professionals empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy. As such, the local club takes seriously its mission to work for a world in which women’s rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential.
