Springfield, Ohio – The Wittenberg Guild will once again host its annual Scholarship Style Show on Saturday, Nov. 9, in the Center Dining Room of the Benham-Pence Student Center, with all money raised going to scholarships for Wittenberg students from Springfield and Clark County.
The event features local models varying in age, sex, size and ethnicity in order to reflect the diversity within the surrounding communities. This clothing worn by the models will be provided by Macy’s at Tuttle Crossing, as well as the Pink Door Consignment Shop in Dublin, Ohio.
The 2013 co-chairpersons are Gretta Runyan and Janet James, both of whom are longtime Springfield philanthropists and community leaders. The event’s theme in 2013 is “Carnival of Fashion,” beginning with a silent auction, raffle and social hour at 10 a.m. before an elegant lunch is served during the show at 11:30 a.m.
Entertainment for the 58th annual Scholarship Style Show includes a special performance by the Springfield Ballet Company of the Ohio Performing Arts Institute. A basket auction and raffle will take place as well, with great prizes that include a gift certificate from Mallia Salon and Day Spa, an evening for two at Cecil and Lime Restaurant, and more.
The Wittenberg Guild has supported Wittenberg for 69 years. Over the years, the organization has raised more than $1 million for scholarships for Wittenberg students, with a goal to raise more than $20,000 through the style show and $40,000 overall in 2013.
Tickets sold in advance are $25 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. Tickets sold at the show are $30 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under.
