If you’ve ever wanted to see your favorite local crimefighter modeling your favorite designer handbag– and I never thought I’d say those words together at the same time– your big chance is coming.
Area police and fire personnel will model those handbags down a runway while helping raise money for a great cause.
The Paluxy River Children’s Advocacy Center will be hosting its first ever Heroes with Handbags event at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25, at City Hall, with 20 bingo-style games being played for designer purse prizes.
Kerrie Stannell is executive director of the PRCAC. She said this is an event they’ve seen at other Children’s Advocacy Centers, but they really wanted to amp it up.
The event will be emceed by Courtney Patton and DJ’d by Spencer Kirk as officers strut their stuff showing off the prizes.
Assistant chief Jason Halsey is on the PRCAC board and sent out a request for police runway model volunteers. One of the models is Chief Jason King.
Take a break from back-to-school preparations Saturday, Aug. 20, when Tarleton State’s W.K. Gordon Center for Industrial History of Texas is hosting a Night at the Opera House, featuring the classic movie Treasure Island.
The 1934 film classic—based on the work of Robert Louis Stevenson—stars Jackie Cooper and Lionel Barrymore.
The free swashbuckling adventure starts at 6:30 p.m., with free snacks at intermission. Seating is limited and reservations are requested. To reserve seats, call 254-968-1886 or email email@example.com.
