(Rockwall) May 29, 2012 – ‘All systems were go’ when a sold-out crowed blasted off with the Starship Enterprise crew led by rocketmen Billy Quinton and Russ Childers, along with their co-star Sheri Franza, for the 2nd annual Helping Hands Fashion Show on May 23 at the Hilton Bella Harbor.
Out of this world fashions from the Helping Hands Centsible Thrift Stores were rocketed down the runway by a bevy of beautiful local “aliens” and some very hip, well-dressed men. They modeled high fashions available at the Centsible stores at true bargain prices.
This year’s event included a silent auction of some top merchandise from The Boutique at Helping Hands – an area in the Williams Street store that showcases designer merchandise at slightly higher thrift store prices – but still priced to sell.
The auction included outstanding furniture items that were selected from the thrift stores and refurbished by area decorators in competition for the Thrifty Designers Challenge. Bella’s House was selected as the Designer Challenge winner.
All proceeds benefited Helping Hands, a non-profit agency that helps qualifying residents in crisis help with shelter and utility bills, food, gas, clothing and household items.
