Plan on lunch this Friday at the Marriott Solana! The 2012 Metroport Meals on Wheels Fashion Show and Shopping Bazaar is this Friday starting at 10:00 a.m. This year’s theme is Serving Up Fashion with Impact and its purpose is to help raise funds for Metroport Meals on Wheels which serves people in northeast Tarrant, south Denton and south Wise Counties.
According to its website, Metroport Meals On Wheels, Inc. (MMOW) is a nonprofit organization which organizes volunteers to deliver hot lunches to homes of individuals who are elderly, frail, chronically ill or homebound. Although most program participants receive meals on an on-going basis, MMOW also helps during periods when someone needs temporary or short-term assistance.
MMOW also provides help for active seniors by creating and managing senior center community luncheon programs (such as the one in Southlake) and promoting already established senior centers.
This year’s fashion and style sponsors include Doncaster, Brides and Beaux, Brooks Brothers, David Hunt Furs Inc., Sadie’s Upscale Consignment and Resale and Isabella’s Exclusive Salon.
Event sponsors include Fonda Martin-Fonda Enterprises; Allied Waste Services, AT&T; Joyce Owen; Baylor Regional Medical Center at Grapevine; Terry and Barry Clark; Frost Banking, Investment, Insurance; Greater Southlake Women’s Society; Mary King; Susann F. Land, MD; Virginia M. Muzyka; Roxann Taylor & Associates, Realtors; Wells Fargo; American Airlines American Eagle; 360 West; and Our Great City.
