Fashions of a Coal Miner's Daughter to benefit symphony | Arts & Culture
To millions of people around the world Loretta Lynn is the "Coal Miner's Daughter." This week you'll have a chance to bid on some of the country music legend's beautiful fashions while helping area school children make beautiful music.
The second annual Symphony of Style Spring Fashion Show, hosted by the Delta Symphony Orchestra Guild, will be held Friday, March 9, from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Jonesboro Country Club.
Several stores are scheduled to participate in the event including Chico's, Coldwater Creek, Dress Barn, Enhancements, Eden, Steam Roller Blues and many more.
A new addition to this year's fashion show will be a celebrity fashion auction, featuring several items donated by country music star Loretta Lynn and her fashion designer, Tim Cobb.
Cobb is originally from Lake City and has worked with Lynn for 30-plus years.
Tickets for the fashion show, including lunch, are $25 each or $200 for a table of eight.
They may be purchased from any Delta Symphony Guild member or by calling Executive Director Christy McKeel at (870) 761-2747.
Proceeds from the event will support the Symphony’s Adopt-a-School Program.
According to the guild:
The Adopt-a-School program is where small ensembles are invited to perform in our local elementary schools and speak to the students about various aspects of music and being a musician. The Delta Symphony’s most recent adopted school is Jonesboro’s Micro Society Magnet School.
