Couture for a Cause aims to raise funds for Alzheimer's Awareness June 6 

Couture for a Cause, a fashion show for Alzheimer's Awareness will be held on June 6th at Parks Marina.

Jeff Thee with Parks Marina explains.  "We're putting on a fashion show for Alzheimer's Awareness Month in June, so we contacted the Alzheimer's Association in Sioux City.  They were happy to make this work as a fundraiser that is going to benefit Alzheimer's Awareness.  Then we worked with Keelson Harbour and Michelle was kind enough to come on as a sponsor to go along with this cause.  Jill Madsen's going to be there from Sioux City from the Alzheimer's Association."

He adds that funds raised during the event will go directly to the Alzheimer's Association.  "We're going to be at Park's Boat Club, that's the events center above Snapper's at Parks Marina.  Doors will open at 6.  It is free to the public.  We want everybody to come who loves fashion, but if you've got some association with Alzheimer's, if you've been a caretaker, if you have a family member and so forth, this will be a great way to raise funds.  The way we're going to raise funds is we're going to be selling raffle tickets throughout the evening and so, we have great prizes that are going to come out and we'll be doing some BINGO throughout the evening, and all these funds, every time you buy tickets, it's going to go to help Alzheimer's."

Thee says they hope to make Couture for a Cause an annual event.
