Noah’s Ark will host its annual fashion show extravaganza, “Sixty Years of Style,” on Feb. 10 at 1 p.m. at St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church, at 2304 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.

This year’s event will commemorate the island thrift shop’s 60 years of selling donated clothing, household items, small appliances, furniture and sports equipment. The show will feature fashions on sale, as well as vintage outfits representing each of the last six decades of the store’s operation – 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s 2000s and 2010s.

The doors will open at 12:30 p.m. Admission is free.

Event co-chairs Liz Coffey and Robin Fidler are excited about this year’s fashions. According to Coffey, shop volunteers and other parishioners will model active wear and lifestyle fashions, as well as festive evening costumes.

“Basically, anything on sale that they love,” she said of the models.

“The show is our way of thanking those who support the Ark,” Coffey added.

The event will also include door prizes, featuring new items donated to the store.

Music will be provided by pianist and parishioner Dr. Richard Mattern.

The church will use proceeds from last year’s show to award grants to 23 local, national and international organizations. It will also will present a check to F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva.

“We are delighted that the phenomenal success of the Ark, along with outreach money budgeted by the parish, enables St. Michael’s to award so many grants to critically important charities and causes,” Priest-in-Charge Alan Kelmereit said.

Refreshments will be provided after the show, and the modeled clothing will be for sale.
