Linly Heflin Fashion Show
October 14, 2015$50
The Linly Heflin Scholarship Luncheon and Fashion Show is a long-standing Birmingham tradition. In its 57th year, the event and organization are dedicated to providing scholarships to Alabama native women bound for in-state colleges. This year, the event will take place on Oct. 14 at the Sheraton Birmingham Hotel’s ballroom. Local clothier Gus Mayer will serve as the primary sponsor for the event and is arranging a fashion show around New Orleans-based designer Smith Sinrod. Local buyers may already be familiar with Sinrod, a University of Alabama graduate. Her signature line, by SMITH, is available at Gus Mayer and her latest collection will headline the fashion show.
According to their website, the Linly Heflin service unit dates back to the early 20th century. Its namesake was a Birmingham resident who was known for her helpful spirit after organizing war efforts such as knitting hats for soldiers during World War I. Heflin died from the flu in her early twenties, but her impact lives on. To date, the unit has provided over 3000 scholarships totaling over five millions dollars.
Tickets for this event are $50 and can be purchased by calling 871-8171 or visiting www.linlyheflin.org.
