The themed baskets are donated by members and friends of the guild. A one-week stay at a vacation home in Lake Lure, N.C., will be auctioned off as well. The luncheon and style show begins at 11:30 a.m. Local volunteer models will don clothing from Macy's at Tuttle Crossing, complemented with jewelry from Goldesign and hair styles by Mallia Salon and Day Spa. Lynn Jacques of Macy's will narrate.
"Fashioning the Future" features a wide range of models, including a Wittenberg student from the African nation of Niger and Wittenberg President Mark H. Erickson. Other models include an eye surgeon, a realtor and several moms who do volunteer work in the Springfield community. The show also features entertainment by a musical trio, the Tons of Fun Trio (TOFT), and a children's ballet company.

Through the years, the organization has raised more than $880,000 for scholarship support, campus landscaping, sculptures and artwork for the student center, renovation of the Ann Miller Gallery in Koch Hall and pianos for Krieg Hall.
Prizes, including a strand of freshwater pearls from Goldesign, a day at Mallia Salon and Day Spa, a silver Pandora bracelet from Pemberely and Plum, and 12 dinners from Dream Dinners, will be raffled off.
