Letter: Fashionable help


On Oct. 28, the AIRES Fall Fantasy Fashion Show was held at the Yavapai Indian Tribe Gathering Center. AIRES is an organization that works with people with special needs. Members from AIRES and the Yavapai Indian tribe were amazing models. The journey began as each person was given the opportunity to shop at Hope’s Attic, Stepping Stones or Salvation Army to choose the outfit they would be modeling and then to keep the outfit. The day of the Fashion Show, the models were given the opportunity to choose to have their hair styled at Rogers Academy of Beauty or by Casy Wilsbach and Tim Winton from Myra’s Hair City. They also had the opportunity to have makeup applied.

Kristine FireThunder, the Policy Adviser on Tribal Relations from the Office of the Governor, was a speaker. Also, Wendy Shaw, President/CEO, at AIRES welcomed the models and guests.

There were so many local companies that sponsored this amazing event. Melcher Printing made the posters and programs. There were items donated for the silent auction by Red Lobster, Canyon Auto, TSC Tractor Supply Co, Picture Show, Olive Garden, C-A-L Ranch, Antelope Lanes, Full Swing Sports Center, Shopko, Texas Roadhouse, 2nd Street Tattoo, Shooter’s Pest Control and Smart Girls. Christina Marcum, owner of Wandered Off Media LLC, recorded the event. AIRES appreciates all the talented models and the amazing sponsors of this incredible event.
