Portland, Ore., - Union Gospel Mission will be hosting a Tea Party and Fashion Show to benefit the women and children in the Mission's LifeChange program. The LifeChange program helps women and children overcome homelessness, addiction and abuse. The Tea Party and Fashion show takes place on Saturday, May 20 at 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at Embassy Suites Washington Square, 9000 Washington Square Road in Tigard.

KPDQ radio's Georgene Rice will be the emcee and the fashion show will feature clothing from Union Gospel Mission's thrift store, which is located in Tigard. The store serves a job training location for men and women in the Mission's LifeChange recovery program and revenue from the store supports the LifeChange recovery program.

The fashions from the store will be modeled by West Linn High School students who are representatives for Kelly Mooney Photography, and have posed for pictures to promote the fashions and the event. One volunteer and two residents from the women's LifeChange program will also participate in the fashion show.

The Tea Party and Fashion show is free, but guests will be asked to make a donation in support of the women and children's LifeChange program at the event. For more information and to RSVP go to ugmportland.org/tea or contact Courtney Dodds at courtneyd@ugmportland.org or call 503-274-4483.
