Prodigal Ministries, a non-profit organization that provides after-prison care for men and women, hosted its fifth annual Christmas in September Runway Fashion Show & Boutique Sept. 6 at the new Marriott Louisville East on Embassy Square Boulevard.
Fashion Show Sponsor, The Summit, provided goodie bags for guests, as well as a $500 shopping spree. Hors dâ€™oeuvres and refreshments, a silent auction, presentation, dinner and a fashion show were featured.
The event was tailored to honor Jean McCauley and Robinson S. Brown, Jr., who started the tradition â€œChristmas in September,â€ and are major supporters of Prodigal Ministries.
Jeff Kaeppeler, father of Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler, shared his story and talked about his daughterâ€™s national platform, â€œMentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents.â€ Heather French Henry, former Miss America and mentor to Laura, served as the event emcee.
