Lit Comes Alive With American Girl Fashion

Tickets are now on sale for Our Lady of Mercy’s American Girl Fashion Show® that will take place at Our Lady of Mercy School in Hicksville, Oct. 18  to Oct. 20. Fashion show tickets are $37 and can be purchased online at www.americangirlfashionshows.com. Tickets will not be sold at the door.

A total of four two-hour fashion shows will be held highlighting the American Girl historical characters and their individual stories, as well as showcasing contemporary fashions.  Each fashion show will include tea-party style refreshments, raffles, souvenirs, and door prizes.  Proceeds from the fashion show will be used to benefit Our Lady of Mercy School.

Last year’s American Girl Fashion show hosted by Our Lady of Mercy was a tremendous success raising over $24,000 for Our Lady of Mercy School with over 800 people from all over long island attending the event. “The gym was transformed and the decorations were wonderful!” said one attendee from Bethpage, “and the food was delicious!”

This year’s fashion shows will once again feature local girls from the community modeling American Girl Fashions on loan to Our Lady of Mercy from American Girl Programs, Inc. Our Lady of Mercy is having a “model search” for girls who are either size 6x or 10 to model during the shows   If you would like information about modeling, please see the fashion show website,  www.americangirlfashionshows.com.

American Girl Dolls are a contemporary phenomenon that teaches young girls about periods in American history by telling the stories from the perspective of young girls living in that time period.  The American Girl stories cover topics such as poverty, racism, and war, and present these topics in way that young girls can understand.  Each American Girl Doll comes with its own line of clothing, accessories, and storybooks.

There’s no question that Halloween is a holiday for the kids. But what about the kids that can’t enjoy it normally because they have severe allergies? That’s when “The Teal Pumpkin Project” steps in to help.

“The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all,” said Plainview resident Heather Alberti, whose five year old son, Nathan, has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts.
