The Long Bay Symphony Guild is presenting the Symphony Goes Vogue Fashion Show and Luncheon on Oct. 10 at the Surf Golf and Beach Club. The event is a fundraiser to help support and promote the Long Bay Symphony Orchestra, its youth education programs in local schools, scholarship funds and the Long Bay Symphony Youth Orchestra.

Since its founding in 1987 and its first concert in 1988, the Long Bay Symphony Orchestra has more than lived up to the vision, mission and core values that were originally established for it.

Dr. Charles Jones Evans has been music director/conductor since 1996. According to the orchestra’s website, its vision has always been to play a leading role in the Grand Strand’s cultural growth in order to be recognized as a center of musical excellence and one of the best professional symphonies in the southeast.

The orchestra has always been committed to providing educational programs for students and adults. The Long Bay Symphony Youth Orchestra was founded in 1990. Other musical education programs include Musicians in the Schools.

The Guild asks that reservations for the Oct. 10 luncheon and fashion show be made by Oct. 1. The doors open at 11 a.m. and guests will be entertained by a trio of musicians as they check out the silent auction items and the themed baskets that are to be raffled.

The three-course luncheon begins at noon. The music will include selections by members of the Long Bay Symphony Youth Orchestra. Belk will showcase fashions for formal and casual wear.

Raffle tickets are $5 each or five for $20. Raffle tickets can be purchased with your ticket and will be held for you at the check-in table. There will also be door prizes. Belk Charity Day coupons will be available for sale.

As it supports the orchestra and musical education for youth and adults through the events its members plan and work to present, the Guild also offers people the opportunity to make new friends and enjoy the camaraderie shared by many of those who love and promote music and the arts in the Grand Strand area.

The Guild welcomes new members. It meets on the second Tuesday of each month from September through May at 7 p.m. in the Hampton Inn at Broadway at the Beach. For more information about becoming a Guild member, contact Diane White at 241-1472 or email pdswhite@yahoo.com.
