Style Show for Scholarships Benefiting the
Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Garland County


Enjoy fun fashions, dine on gumbo, and bid on silent auction items at the 5th annual Style Show for Scholarships benefiting the Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Garland County (SPSFGC). The style show will feature fashions from the Lagniappe Shoppe, special music by Heartsong, catered lunch from Special Touch Catering, and a silent auction. The style show will be presented February 28, on Friday at noon, at the newly remodeled Forest Lakes Clubhouse. Advanced ticket purchase is encouraged, but tickets can be purchased at the door. Tickets are $25.

Karen Garcia, SPSFGC Chair, said the committee awarded 48 scholarships last year valued at $24,000. "Many of the recipients attend National Park Community College," said Garcia, "but, recipients can attend the school of their choice as long as they are residents of Garland County."

The SPSFGC provides scholarships to men and women of Garland County who demonstrate financial need, are single parents, and are enrolled in a post-secondary educational course of study leading to a degree, diploma, or certificate of graduation.

Garcia said investing $1 in the education of these students returns fourteen dollars to the community as they graduate and enter into the workforce. The SPSFGC scholarships encourage students' success by providing financial assistance that can be used for transportation, child care, medical expenses, school supplies, books and fees, and housing.

The goal of the Single Parent Scholarship Fund is to effectively break the cycle of generational poverty through assisting single-parents, men and women, in obtaining a post-secondary education and needed skills to obtain well-paying jobs.

An affiliate of National Park Community College Foundation and the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund (ASPSF), the SPSFGC is a non-profit organization. For every dollar donated to the SPSFGC Style Show, matching funds will be received up to $7,000.

Sponsors of the Style Show are Weyerhaeuser, Virginia Clinton Kelley Democratic Women of Garland County, Morris Foundation, Munro Foundation, Ken and Vicki Cook, Bob Megahan, First Presbyterian Church, Forest Lakes Homes & Condos, National Park Community College Foundation, and the SPSFGC Committee members.
