More than three dozen models were stylin’ during a Saturday fundraiser at Our Lady of Angels Catholic Church in Hermiston.

The annual Catholic Daughters Valentine’s Luncheon & Style Show raises money for the Marilyn Harris Memorial Scholarship. Money is awarded to a pair of local graduating seniors each spring during a Baccalaureate Mass at the Hermiston church.

Gracing the runway were 37 models of all ages, said regent Kristi Smalley of Catholic Daughters of the Americas Court No. 1692. They showed off the latest spring fashions from Bealls, Maurice’s, Smitty’s Ace Hardware, Andee’s Boutique, Lucky Endz Gifts and LuLaRoe by Mandi Bedolla.

With more than 125 people in attendance, Smalley was thrilled by the support. People enjoyed a variety of homemade salads and decadent desserts, she said. In addition, Hermiston High School freshman Marti Plum sang the national anthem to help open the event.

“The local Catholic Daughters are extremely grateful for the support of this annual event,” Smalley said.
