On Thursday, April 23, 2015, the Easter Seals Ladies Auxiliary will celebrate 60 years while they shine bright like a diamond at their annual fashion show.  This anniversary marks 60 years of ladies coming together to help raise funds for the children of Central Illinois.

The Easter Seals Ladies Auxiliary Fashion show of  today has become a premier fundraising  fashion show in the Peoria area. This show is a classy, upbeat, big city style fashion show in support of the children of Easter Seals of Central Illinois.

The Ambassador families, models of all ages, choreography and apparel are all from local businesses in the community, who give their time to such a big endeavor. The Easter Seals Ladies Auxiliary encourage the guests to frequent the businesses who volunteer in the show.

The Ladies Auxiliary spends more than 6 months preparing for the annual fashion show. The ladies take their time doing everything from finding the best stores to participate, to coordinating the design of the ballroom at the Par-A-Dice , and setting up a boutique area to ensure it is a Fashion Show to be talked about.

As of 1991, the Easter Seals Auxiliary has raised $782, 169, which combined, provides 6,576 hours of specialized pediatric therapy over their 60 years of operation.

Join the Ladies Auxiliary on April 23, 2015 to help support Easter Seals of Central Illinois.  There are two shows available the lunch or dinner show and also shop the Boutique.  Help Ladies Auxiliary celebrate  60 years of incredible giving and the women who gave their time to help our local children with special needs.
