Goodwill, The Law Place Honor Women Veterans

SCOOP

SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY JUN 25, 2016

More than 100 community members gathered for the Salute the Runway Fashion Show and Dinner, an event to honor women veterans, presented by Goodwill Manasota and The Law Place. Guests enjoyed a lovely rendition of The Star Spangled Banner courtesy of Goodwill Manasota vice president and Mistress of Ceremonies Veronica Brandon Miller. Dinner selections came from Anna Maria Oyster Bar, Carmel Kitchen, Pizza SRQ, Kona Grill, Oak & Stone and Sift Bake House, with a keynote speech by Retired Colonel Linda Gould, who shared details from her 30 years of service in the US Army and talked about the difficulty veterans can face when returning to their communities and families. A fashion show featured nine area women veterans. Veterans walking the runway wore beautiful evening gowns found at local Goodwill retail stores for just $5.99 or $12.99, a fraction of their original cost.
