Charity fashion show at Blowing Rock Country Club Aug. 4
To help raise money for the Appalachian Regional Healthcare Foundation, Appalachian Regional Healthcare System (ARHS) will host two fundraising events in the coming weeks.
On Thursday, Aug. 4, ARHS will host a gourmet patron dinner party with the theme, "An Evening Under the Stars." The event will take place at a local home in Blowing Rock with views of the gorge and music from a live jazz duet.
On Friday, Aug. 5, ARHS will host the annual fashion show, champagne reception and luncheon at the Blowing Rock Country Club. The fashion show will feature women's, men's and children's fashions from the shops on Main Street. The event will also include a charity raffle with items donated from local merchants valued between $100 and $500.
