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 d’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 “Christmas in September,” and are major supporters of Prodigal Ministries.
Jeff Kaeppeler, father of Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler, shared his story and talked about his daughter’s national platform, “Mentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents.” Heather French Henry, former Miss America and mentor to Laura, served as the event emcee.
