Pittsboro, NC - Local leaders are storming the catwalk in fashions made from recycled materials for the second annual Raising the Roof: Funky Fashion Show & Burrito Bash, a benefit for Chatham Habitat for Humanity and Family Violence & Rape Crisis Services. The event will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1 at the General Store Cafe in Pittsboro.
The "celebrity" models include County Commissioners Brian Bock, Mike Cross, and Walter Petty; Chatham County Sheriff Richard Webster; last year's winner Betty Wilson and daughter Jane Allen Wilson; Home Store Manager Mike Breedlove with internationally renowned artist Louis St. Lewis; dancer & designer Melody Eggen; Police Lt. Lesia McCollough; Chatham Habitat Board President Dick Forbis; George Greger-Holt of Chatham County Schools; Pittsboro Mayor Randy Voller; and others. Pam Smith, owner of Beggars & Choosers, will serve as the Mistress of Ceremonies.
Come out and vote for your favorite fashions by placing bills in paint buckets which will be moving through the crowd. The model who generates the most donations wins a prize!
In addition to the fashion show, the evening includes burritos & a side dish prepared by the General Store Café, an appearance by the fabulous W.I.N.G.S. women, and live music by the esteemed Tommy Edwards of Bluegrass Experience, with Stan Brown and LaNelle Davis.
