On March 4, McKinney residents are invited to take part in a fun evening that will

The deadline to RSVP for the McKinney Ladies Association’s Spring 2013 Fashion Show is Friday, Feb. 22.Tickets are $50 per person.
Fashion Show Chairwoman Tammy DeWet, an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay Cosmetics,says McKinney-area business owners have once again generously donated incredible items for the silent auction, which is always a popular part of the fashion show.
“We have great items to auction this year, including a puck autographed by Mike Modano of the DallasStars, one of the greatest American hockey players ever,” DeWet said. “There are unique family experiencesto bid on – such as a weekend stay at a new lodge or family portrait sessions. There’s a seminar on howto write your own book, a session with a professional home staging expert who will redesign one room inyour home using existing furnishings, tickets to shows and museums, meals at great local restaurants andnumerous themed baskets.
“There is such a great mix of items that we expect the bidding to be highly competitive, which will just addto the fun of the evening. We hope everyone in McKinney can come out to be part of this amazing evening,which is always so much fun for such a great cause,” DeWet said.
