The third annual event, open to the public, will be Feb. 8 at Christ the King Catholic Church, 821 S. Dale Mabry Highway.

“Throughout the year, the Life’s Treasures thrift stores receive incredible donations of beautiful clothing and accessories,” said Anne Ferrell, LifePath Hospice development coordinator. “Our annual fashion show gives us the opportunity to highlight the fashions shoppers can find at Life’s Treasures, raise funds for a good cause and help educate the community about the value of hospice care.”
