Get ready for spring with 20-30 club’s fashion show

Provided to the Tribune

The Sierra Nevada Active 20-30 Club will host its second annual Spring Fashion Show Extravaganza and champagne brunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. April 23 at Genoa Lakes Golf Course. Proceeds from the event will be donated to special needs children and their organizations within Douglas County.

This year the women’s club will exclusively partner with Dillard’s department store, which opened in south Reno this month. This opportunity will allow for more clothing on the runway and give Carson Valley patrons a chance to view what Dillard’s has to offer without taking the drive to Reno. The event will showcase clothing for men, women and children to suit every occasion.

The event will include a silent auction and a raffle with proceeds also going to Douglas County youth and their programs. Silent auction items such as a weekend getaway at Caesars Tahoe, tickets to the Oakland A’s and San Francisco Giants, wine baskets, specialty massages and a one-year supply of milk delivered to your door will be used to raise money for the children of Douglas County.

Ticket prices are $30 in advance and $35 at the door and can be purchased via e-mail request to;; or by calling (775) 691-3982. It is recommended that tickets be purchased in advance. For more information or to join the club visit their Web site at

Community projects and fundraisers are at the heart of the Sierra Nevada Active 20-30 Club. Each woman in the club is between the ages of 20 and 39 and anyone is welcome to join. 20-30 clubs, which are in nine different countries, donate thousands of dollars a year back to their communities in support of local charities and children’s groups. Events such as the Fashion Show Extravaganza are staged for the benefit of children throughout the area.

“This is our biggest event of the year,” said Jacquie Manoukian, chairperson for the affair. “It’s a lot of fun to organize and I feel it’s our way of giving back to the community. Our club is about making our projects work for everyone.”
