Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary’s Annual Luncheon “Eyes” Elegance with 2020 Vision

Aptly titled “Reflections on Style, Eyeing Elegance with 2020 Vision,” this annual sold-out luncheon and four-day fashion & shopping boutique did not disappoint this year, even with the rescheduling due to the pandemic.

Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Luncheon chair Deborah Dunkum’s leadership brought in $830,000. Chic Boutique co-chairs Maggie Austin and Dodi Willingham along with Chic Boutique Showroom co-chairs Sally Gray and Frances Howard, combined their considerable forces and brought the final tally to a whopping $900,000 for the organization.

For her support and longtime service commitment to the organization, as well as others, Ginger Blanton was the luncheon’s honoree.

Over the course of a multi-day shopping extravaganza, bargain hunters walked away with prized pieces of Chanel, Gucci and notable items such as ball gowns, and a mink coat—all at a fraction of retail cost.

Socially distancing and present (not mentioned previously): Rose Cullen, Jeanie Kilroy Wilson, Linda McReynolds, Lilly Andress, Vicki West, Sidney Faust, Jan Duncan, Susan Hansen, Mary Maxey, Pam Senglemann, Carol Sharp and Stick Delaup.
