Fashion Show Fundraiser 2022

19th Annual Fashion Show Fundraiser & Social

The Larrabee Center/Trinkets & Togs 19th Annual Fundraiser Fashion Show & Social was truly a night of celebration and a wonderful success in raising awareness and funds for Employment Services. On Thursday, September 29th at Prairie Links Event Center, guests gathered to enjoy live music from Mitch Laue, delicious food catered by Hy-Vee and The Mixing Bowl, a silent auction with fabulous packages, door prizes, and unique experiences like shopping our Trinkets Boutique, playing our Trinkets Treasure Hunt and even a Mystery Box Game with some fun prizes. The highlight of the night was our fashion show featuring clients, staff, volunteers and family members.

Sharing our mission and highlighting client success stories were prominent pieces of our event and we were thrilled to have clients who have worked at Trinkets & Togs as well as those who have obtained and maintained employment in the community be featured at our event. The purpose of our event was also to raise funds to support our Employment Services. Thanks to our generous sponsors and the overwhelming support from the community, over $14,000 was raised to support Employment Services, specifically to cover wages for participants working at Trinkets & Togs in Waverly. To close out the night, guests were treated to a giveaway of the beautiful floral centerpieces generously donated by Ecker’s Flowers & Greenhouses.

Four local employers were also recognized during the event as Inclusive Employers for their commitment to hiring employees of all abilities. This year’s honorees were Hy-Vee, Cobblestone Inn & Suites, Wartburg College Dining Services and Waverly Health Center. Clients who work at the businesses along with a representative of each employer accepted the recognition awards.
