This year’s United Methodist Women’s Spring Luncheon is dedicated to charitable giving in local missions. Activities include a “Donations Only” fashion show. Models will walk through the luncheon area, showing off their fashion couture. All the modeled clothing will be donated to Justa Center, an outreach that helps homeless seniors over the age of 55 on the journey back into housing.

There will also be a silent charity auction featuring items donated by various community and local business. Funds will benefit Maggie’s Place, which provides houses of hospitality and ongoing support to help pregnant and parenting women in need.
