Tickets are still available for the fourth annual Yolo County Celebrity Fashion Show, at 6 p.m. Friday, April 26, in the West Sacramento City Hall Galleria. The popular event to raise money for the Yolo County Children’s Alliance and Child Abuse Prevention Council features fashions from local clothiers modeled by community and business leaders.

Davis celebrity models include Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor, Davis Mayor Pro Dan Wolk, Davis City Councilwoman Rochelle Swanson, Davis Board of Education member Gina Daleiden, Davis Ace owner Jennifer Anderson and First 5 Yolo Executive Director Julie Gallelo.

The “voice of the Sacramento Kings,” Scott Moak, returns as the fashion show emcee.

Other Yolo County celebrities include West Sacramento Mayor Christopher Cabaldon, Sacramento City College President Kathryn Jeffry, Los Rios Community College District Vice Chancellor Beverly “Babs” Sandeen, Yolo County Administrator Patrick Blacklock and Julie Blacklock, president of the Woodland school board. They will join other public figures and business leaders from throughout the county on the runway to raise money for child abuse prevention efforts.

Davis stores providing clothing for the models include the Davis Sport Shop, The Wardrobe and Haute Again.

Besides the fashions, the features appetizers and local wines.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and event organizers expect a packed house of supporters for the critical public outreach and life-saving programs of the Children’s Alliance and Child Abuse Prevention Council. Proceeds from the event will support Children’s Alliance programs, including services to combat child abuse and neglect.

Each year, Yolo County’s Child Welfare Services receives approximately 1,500 reports of suspected child abuse or neglect. Last year, more than 250 children from Yolo County were placed in child-welfare supervised locations. The 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 on April 26 in West Sacramento and the Child Abuse Fun Run on April 28 in Davis will complete many activities take place during April in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month.
