JOHNSTOWN — Spring into spring by adding new fashions to your wardrobe.

Johnstown Symphony Auxiliary’s 21st annual Springtime Serenade Fashion Show will be held at 5:30 p.m. May 7 at Sunnehanna Country Club, 1000 Sunnehanna Drive, Westmont.

“This event is the major fundraiser for the auxiliary, and it’s a wonderful fashion show that has up-to-the-minute fashions from across the region,” said Mary Borkow, co-chairwoman of the event.

“It’s also being held in conjunction with the 84th anniversary celebration of Johnstown Symphony Orchestra.”

Complimentary champagne punch will be served at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6.

There also will be door and table prizes and an auction.

The fashion show will start at 7 with between 20-25 local celebrities taking to the runway as models.

Fashions will be provided by Celestial Brides and Miller’s Clothing and Tuxedo Rentals, downtown Johnstown; Christopher & Banks and  Boscov’s, The Galleria; Doncaster; Dress Barn, Richland Town Centre; and The Pro Shop at Sunnehanna. New to the lineup this year is Betsy’s of Ligonier and King & Queen Ladies Shoppe, East Hills Plaza.

“They’re current and fresh styles for both men and women in casual, business and formal wear,” Borkow said.

Tickets are $36 per person and the deadline to reserve a seat is April 26.

“We always have a sellout crowd, and it’s an important cause that helps fund the symphony,” Borkow said.

“It’s a fun event, where people can come out, kick back and enjoy the fashions.”
