The highlight of the evening will come during a fairytale-themed fashion show emceed by WXYZ Reporter Erin Nicole and featuring twelve women currently enrolled in the women’s program. Each beneficiary will be dressed in attire from one of the 33 metro Detroit Salvation Army thrift stores, and themed to reflect one of the princess fairytale stories.
“The ladies who live at the Romulus facility truly undergo a massive transformation while participating in our rehabilitation program,” Cheryl Miller, administrator of women’s and families ministries for The Salvation Army ARC. “The fairytale theme of the Harvest of Blessings fashion show is representative of the positive changes the women make to rebuild their lives on the journey to recovery.”
Throughout the evening, guests will be invited to take part in a silent auction of items donated by various local businesses and organizations, including a ticket package to the Detroit Zoo; tickets to a Detroit Pistons game; a boat ride on the Detroit Diamond Jack; a spa package; custom golf clubs; a selection of gift cards; and exclusive items from each of The Salvation Army’s 33 metro Detroit thrift stores.
All proceeds will directly benefit the nonprofit’s Adult Rehabilitation Centers in metro Detroit.
“The ultimate goal of the Harvest of Blessings event is to raise money to provide support for beneficiaries and their families,” said Merle Miller, administrator of The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center. “Since all of our ARC programs are independently-funded, this annual fundraiser plays a key role in continuing our ability to assist men and women looking to overcome their addictions.”
