DFS Galleria Waikiki Fashion Show At Sacs In The City

DFS Galleria Waikiki Fashion Show At Sacs In The City

The Junior League of Honolulu hosts its ninth annual “SACS in the City” fundraiser in collaboration with DFS Galleria Waikiki March 16 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Sheraton Waikiki.

Festivities include a runway fashion show, three-course luncheon and a silent auction of more than 200 items ranging from luxury handbags and accessories to travel and dining opportunities. Proceeds will benefit local community service projects for women and teen girls in need, such as Wahine Forum (an annual conference that promotes the importance of women in the workplace), My Story (a nine-week mentorship program that promotes self-esteem for teen girls) and Kids in the Kitchen (year-round educational events about healthy meals and active lifestyles).

Founded in 1923, the Junior League of Honolulu has a membership of more than 400 women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

Tickets to SACS in the City cost $125. For more information, visit juniorleagueofhonolulu.org.
