Tickets are still available for the third annual Yolo County Celebrity Fashion Show at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 29, in the West Sacramento City Hall Galleria. The popular event to benefit the Yolo County Children’s Alliance and Child Abuse Prevention Council features fashions from local clothiers modeled by well-known community and business leaders.

Davis models include elected officials Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor, Mayor Joe Krovoza, Mayor Pro Tem Rochelle Swanson, Davis City Councilman Stephen Souza and Davis Board of Education member Gina Daleiden.

UC Davis will be represented again by the Vice Chancellor for University Relations Beverly Sandeen. Community leaders include Jennifer Anderson, owner of Davis Ace; a team from First Northern Bank led by vice president Celso Peña; Davis Rotarian Judy Wolf; and De Luna Jewelers manager Adrian Blanco.

Many other Yolo County celebrities will participate, including county, city and school board officials from Woodland, Winters and West Sacramento.

Davis stores providing clothing for the models include Fleet Feet, Davis Sport Shop, The Wardrobe, Lily’s, GapKids and Haute Again.

The fashion show emcee this year is Scott Moak, “voice of the Sacramento Kings,” and special mascot appearances are planned by the Kings’ Slamson, the River Cats’ Dinger and West Sacramento’s Mooie.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and event organizers expect a packed house of supporters for the public outreach and life-saving programs to prevent child abuse in Yolo County.

Each year, Yolo County’s Child Welfare Services receives approximately 1,500 reports of suspected child abuse or neglect. The county’s Children’s Alliance is actively addressing issues that lead to these tragedies by providing child abuse prevention programs and educating the community about the many resources available for prevention and treatment.

The fashion show will be the first of many activities to be held throughout April in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month.

Tickets are $45 and are available online at www.yolokids.org or by calling the Yolo County Children’s Alliance and Child Abuse Prevention Council at (530) 757-5558.
