An added feature at the upcoming Pierian Woman’s Club Luncheon and Style Show will be a silent auction to benefit the Back Pack Buddies Program, established in Anderson County by Lawrenceburg First Christian Church.
Some families rely on free or reduced-price lunches to feed their children during the week. On weekends, many parents struggle to put meals on their tables; other families may be negligent, according to a news release from the club.
Back Pack Buddies provides food for needy children for the weekend. Easy-to-fix meals are packed in a backpack and delivered to schools. Children pick up a backpack on their way home each Friday and bring back the empty backpack on Monday. Back Pack Buddies is funded entirely by donations.
The club is seeking auction items and gift certificates from local merchants as well as contributions from its members.
The Luncheon and Style Show will be held April 30 at the Family Life Center of St. Lawrence Catholic Church. The luncheon menu includes chicken salad, strawberry pretzel salad, croissants and sawdust pie. Fashions will be presented by Martha Caywood from The Derby Shoppe and Raggs in Danville.
Tickets are $15 each; contact Jo Stratton at 839-4189.
