Paris in Pike to roll out the red carpet April 13

Paris in Pike will celebrate seven years as local kids with special needs walk the red carpet on Friday, April 13 at 7 p.m. at Christ Chapel. The fashion fundraiser will help raise money for the Pike County Navigator Team which helps local families of kids with special needs and also plans to offer a scholarship. In addition to the fashion show and various performances, Paris in Pike will also include raffles and a silent auction. ’The Pike County Navigator Team is partnering with two PCHS students, Scarlett Mullis and Abbi Hood to host our seventh annual fashion show for Pike students with special needs. We also provide parent training sessions throughout the year and are in the planning stages of offering a college scholarship in memory of one of our students,’ said organizer April Cobb. ‘Our goal is to promote community awareness and raise funds for students with disabilities. If you have any questions or would like to be a sponsor, contact me at aprilcobb74@gmail.com.’ Mullis and Hood came up with the idea for the fashion show fundraiser as third graders and have been an integral part of the show every year since. The event is free and open to the public and donations are accepted at the door. ’Sponsors and donors are always appreciated and enable us to help these girls with big hearts realize their dream and do a great thing for deserving students with special needs,’ said Desirae Story. ‘Donations stay in our county and with our special families. We are all volunteers so 100% goes to the cause. Donations are also tax-deductible.’  Students in the Paris in Pike fashion show include Annabella Blair, Eli Blair, Chelsea Grace Blount, Morgen Chapman, Tyler Cobb, Darby Cochran, Gavin Collins, Zoe Czarnota, Ashley Deverick, Chevy Elliott, Abby Sue Eubanks, Azalea Gordon, Madison Hilderbrand, Briana Hudson, Ansleigh Ivey, Tyshun James, Shaquita Jenkins, Harley Mann, Ally Mendoza, Hunter Middlebrooks, Alicia O’Donnell, Gabby Pearson, Madelyn Petty, Ansley Resmondo, John Shirah, Cooper Terry, Lily Turner, Dylan Wilson and Scout Schallott. Each of the students went on shopping trips to pick out their outfits for the fashion show.   Last year’s event raise more than $1,500 which helped pay for the students’ outfits and the show and some will go toward a scholarship in memory of a local student. The venue will be transformed to create Paris in Pike for the evening at 115 Sullivan Road in Zebulon. ’We would love for everyone to come out to celebrate the night with us,’ said Story. ‘We are all honored to be apart of this event for seven years now.’
