Ladies lunch, earn big money for Salvation Army

Lawton_The Lawton Salvation Army's Women's Auxiliary is 140 members strong. Their goal for their biggest fundraiser of the year - $7,000. The group held a fashion show and luncheon Thursday to raise money for the Salvation Army. Funding from the fashion show will benefit Salvation Army programs, such as the food pantry, homeless shelter, and the Boys and Girls Club.

While the ladies had fun at the fundraiser, they are serious about raising money - and, they're already planning next years event. But, Thursday, it was all about fun, food, and fashion at Lawton's Great Plains Technology Center, as the group campaigned for a serious cause - helping those who have no where else to turn.

They say their doing their part to raise money for a good cause. For example, the Salvation Army Boy's and Girl's Club provides the only after school program in the city. Another example is the Angel Tree which provides games and clothing for youngsters that would otherwise go without. Additionally, the Salvation Army has the only homeless emergency shelter in Lawton, and it's food pantry and kitchen fed 35,000 families last year.

The Women's Auxiliary Club has fundraisers for the Salvation Army throughout the year, but the Style Show and Luncheon is their largest. A portion of the money the group earned at the fashion show will provide scholarships for kids' summer camps.
