Zonta fashion helps PEERS
Women helping women is always in fashion.
The Zonta Club of Victoria’s third annual Fashion Show and Luncheon returns to the Capital City Yacht Club on Saturday (April 12), where local women raise money to help other women in their community.
“It is important to give back. Life has been good to me as a woman, but I know a lot of women struggle,” said fashion show co-ordinator Carol Crabb.
The 45-year-old society of 22 women, an arm of Zonta International, an organization aimed at improving the lives of women around the world through service and advocacy, will donate proceeds from the fashion show’s ticket sales to the Prostitutes Empowerment, Education and Recovery Society (PEERS).
All fashion is provided by the Marmalade Tart boutique.
“Women as a part of the human race do need help,” Crabb said. “There are still challenges for many women in many communities, (but we’ll do) whatever we can do to help women be healthy in their home and healthy in their environment.”
Tickets are $45. For more information, please go online to zontavictoria.org.
