Collection of school supplies at mall set Saturday

DANVILLE — Big Brothers Big Sisters of Vermilion County and the Village Mall are teaming up to collect school supplies for area students.

The supplies will be collected at a fashion show at 1 p.m. Saturday at the mall, 2917 N. Vermilion St.

The fashion show will include fashions for people and pets. There will also be entertainment, displays, sales and more.

Lovely Nails will provide nail polishes to children 12 and under for $5 apiece from 1 to 4 p.m., and BoRics Haircare will demonstrate "hair chalking."

Big Brothers Big Sisters representatives will be on hand to educate the public on the organization's one-to-one mentoring and after-school programs.

Anyone who donates supplies during the event will receive a ticket and be entered into a drawing for door prizes.

All tickets will be placed in a drawing for a grand prize, which will be given away at the end of the fashion show. You must be present to win.
