The annual Dallas Women’s Auxiliary Fashion Show & luncheon is an opportunity for women to support Poverty, Addiction and Homelessness, by providing programs and housing for domestic violence survivors, people experiencing homelessness and those recovering from addiction. Attendees enjoy a runway fashion show, featuring donated and new couture clothing which can be bid on following the show. Afterward, patrons will enjoy a seated lunch and final bidding on silent and runway auction items.
Since its inception in 1993, The Salvation Army Dallas Women’s Auxiliary Fashion Show & Luncheon has raised over $10 million to support services provided at 14 local Salvation Army facilities.
Due to COVID-19, this year’s Fashion Show & Luncheon has been cancelled.
In lieu of the annual Fashion Show & Luncheon event, a virtual Spring Tea and online silent auction will be held on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, with the online silent auction from Thursday, April 29 through Thursday, May 6, 2021.
The virtual Spring Tea will be hosted by the Executive Committee of the Dallas Women’s Auxiliary. The only silent auction, available to Tea attendees, will feature specifically curated designer handbags and accessories.
“Although we are disappointed, we can’t gather again in person, our members are inspired by the everyday work of The Salvation Army to help those in need in our community,” said Lisa Singleton, Dallas Women’s Auxiliary President. “We knew planning a safe way for people to virtually gather and support The Salvation Army of North Texas was our priority. We encourage our supporters and past Fashion Show & Luncheon attendees to attend virtually or to make a donation to make a difference."

There are many committees that can help you find your passion and fuel it through projects throughout the year. Ares of opportunity include:
Focus on children and families when we fill backpacks with school supplies, stuff small gifts in our Christmas Santa Sacks, or provide a meal to women and children who are victims of domestic violence
Support Veterans by distributing lap blankets to those living in the VA Residential Center
Support sobriety and provide birthday cakes to families celebrating monthly milestones in recovery
Embark on the Spirit of Christmas and volunteer at the NorthPark Angel Tree, help with gift distribution at The Salvation Army Christmas and Disaster Center or ring a bell at an iconic Christmas kettle
For those who love fashion, sort inventory donated couture clothing and accessories for the annual Fashion Show & Luncheon or volunteer at the Fashion Show After Sale
All of these projects make a difference while having fun and fellowship with others who value your time and support.
