If you don't know about all the good work Francis House does in the community, there's a fashion show this weekend that will enlighten.
It's called the Shear Glory Suede Salon Red Carpet Event, and it's scheduled for 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the salon's Folsom location, 850 East Bidwell St., Suite 140.
Shear Glory will feature local designer Dee Aguilar, whose spring/summer collection, Antique Goddess, was the talk of the town at the recent "Imagine" fashion show at the Crest Theatre.
The event also will include fashions from the salon, raffles and catering by Mikuni.
Tickets are $30 at the salon or call (916) 487-2566 or (916) 817-4481.
Francis House is a nonprofit organization that reaches the needs of those who are homeless or, frankly, just down on their luck in our community. Counseling is provided, and Francis House gets support from 17 area churches. Sometimes, just a warm cup of coffee and a shoulder are the best remedies.
In addition to the fashion show this weekend, mark your calendars because Francis House will host its 17th annual Feast for the Streets on April 30 at the Scottish Rite Masonic Center, 6151 H St. Like great food and great wine? Then fork over $50 for a fun evening. Emcee will be Jennifer Smith from Channel 10. Last year's event raised more than $88,000.
