ZONTA CLUB OF PETOSKEY ANNOUNCES HYBRID 49TH ANNUAL FASHION SHOW
Zonta Club of Petoskey announces that our 49th annual Fashion Show will go hybrid for 2021. The show will have both a virtual format as well as an in-person event format, with opportunities for everyone to join in the fun. The event will be on Saturday, November 6, 2021 from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. and we will celebrate Zonta Club of Petoskey’s 50th anniversary on this date as well.
There will be a live, in-person reception on Saturday, November 6 starting at 12 noon in the Rose Room at the Perry Hotel. There will be live music, a cash bar, and heavy hors d’oeuvres. At 1 p.m. we will show a video produced by Scott Castelein of fall fashions from area retailers. Tickets for this event are limited to 100 and will cost $50 per person.
At 12:30 p.m., virtual ticket-holders can access the online show, network with each other through the REMO format provided by the Petoskey Chamber. At 1 p.m., the show will be live and include the video fashion show. Tickets for this event are unlimited and are $20 per person.
At the end of each event, there will be a drawing for gift baskets, and for a diamond piece donated by Arlington Jewelers. All ticket holders are eligible to win the diamond. Gift basket raffle tickets will be sold starting in September.
Tickets to either event can be purchased by going to www.zontapetoskey.com and clicking on “Buy Tickets Now” button. Participants can select either the $20 ticket for the virtual event or the $50 ticket for the live event. Checks can also be made payable to Zonta Club of Petoskey and mailed to Zonta Fashion Show, 807 Howard Street, Petoskey, MI 49770.
Raffle tickets will not be available for sale online but from any Zonta Club of Petoskey member. Watch the website (www.zontapetoskey.com) for details on how to purchase tickets.
“With the uncertainty of the pandemic still shadowing every event,” states Kathy Bardins, chair of the Fashion Show, “we felt, as did our friends at Odawa Casino, that doing a hybrid version of the event would better serve our club and our community.”
Zonta Club of Petoskey uses the funds raised at the fashion show to provide supporting grants to area organizations that help women and girls in our area, including a $2,500 scholarship to NCMC for area women seeking to re-enter the workforce, $1000 scholarship to an area high school girl, remodeling a room in the SAFE House and much more. Last year, the club received requests of more than $35,000, and only had $10,000 to give as a result of the show cancellation in 2020 due to COVID.
Many thanks go to our presenting sponsors: Arlington Jewelers, Comfort Keepers, Reezie DeVet, Stafford’s Hospitality, and Odawa Casino. Thanks also to our gold sponsors, Petoskey Plastics, North Central Michigan College, Petoskey Surgeons and Kim Phelps/Raymond James.
