It's going to be an afternoon of fashion and celebration that can't be missed. The Kiwanis Aktion Club, sponsored by the Kiwanis For Fun of Burbank, will be hosting and participating in a fashion show and luncheon at 11 a.m. March 31.

"Fashion in Aktion: Picnic With A Purpose" is the theme for the event that will be at the beautiful La Bella Banquet Hall, 237 E. Olive Ave., Burbank.


All proceeds will be donated to the new Roy and Patricia Disney Cancer Center at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank. The event will honor Steve Veres of the Burbank Noon Kiwanis for his tremendous dedication to the building of the center.

Opportunity drawing tickets are $1 each or six for $5 to win first prize of $300, second prize of $200 and third prize of $100.

The Aktion club is a community service group for adult residents living with a disability. It provides members with opportunities to develop initiative and leadership, to be integrated into society and to demonstrate the dignity and value of residents living with developmental disabilities.

Burbank Kiwanis For Fun meets at 6:30 p.m. the first and third Thursday of every month at the Hillstreet Café, 3301 N. Glenoaks Blvd. For more information, call Linda Curtin at (818) 841-4667.
