The Ladies Auxiliary of the American Legion Post 14 located at 5315 South Lakeshore Drive in Shreveport will hold its annual Spring Fashion Show and Luncheon on Saturday, April 26, at 11:30 a.m.
The Ladies Auxiliary is a non- profit group founded to assist the American Legion Post and its veterans. Monies raised from the style show also support American Legion projects as well as those in the community such as Operation Soldier, Toys for Tots, and an Easter Egg Hunt for the area’s children.
The Ladies Auxiliary also helps sponsor parties at the War Veterans Home and assists with projects at the local VA Hospital. One very important project is Girls State/Girls Nation, which is for high school juniors in the spring and summer. The ladies auxiliary supports a number of scholarship programs that help benefit veterans, children of veterans and youth. The Ladies Auxiliary is the largest women’s patriotic service organization in the nation.
This year’s fashion show will have an “Old Hollywood” theme. Ticket sales begin in February.
