Good Fun for a Good Cause

When members of the Women’s Division of the Mansfield Area Chamber of Commerce began planning the 2011 Mansfield Style Show and Shopping Expo several months ago, they set two goals: to raise over $60,000 for the community and to create the biggest and best style show and shopping expo in Mansfield history.

The event will take place Saturday September 10, from 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Tarrant County College’s Southeast Campus. The program is packed with fun activities for the whole family:
  • 100 shopping booths by local merchants with free samples and door prizes throughout the day
  •  A community stage featuring local performing arts groups and organizations
  • Mansfield ISD student art contest featuring participants from 14 campuses
  • Taste of Mansfield event with local restaurants and caterers offering delicious samples – Nothing Bundt Cakes, The Melting Pot, Double Throw Down BBQ and more
  • Celebrity Chef Carol Ritchie will demonstrate some of her famous healthy recipes
  • Miss Mansfield will be the emcee for the Children’s Showcase Style Show featuring clothing from local boutiques modeled by local children 
  • Style Show featuring local fashions modeled by a combination of professional  models and local residents
This event will benefit many local charities and organizations, including the Mansfield ISD Scholarship Program, Mansfield ISD Education Foundation and the Mansfield ISD Fine Arts Department.
