The annual Douglas County Historical Society (DCHS) event, Women Defining History, which honors the contribution of women in our community, will take place this year on Saturday, March 23rd. Once again, the event will take place on Historic Fort Omaha at Metropolitan Community College’s Institute of Culinary Arts Swanson Conference Center. This year’s event will begin at 11:30 and tickets will range from $55 for DCHS members to $65 for non-members. Those wishing to get an early start on the vintage jewelry sale and attend an exclusive pre-event champagne reception beginning at 11:00 a.m. are able to purchase a Patron ticket for $80.

This year’s honoree is DCHS member Cindy Hadsell who is being recognized for her impact of her philanthropic work in our community. The Douglas County community is richer because of her work with arts and culture, the humanities, and human services.

Combined with the honoring of the award is the themed runway show, focusing on a certain time in fashion. This year’s theme will be Pillboxes to headbands: Fashions from the 1960s.

In order to fully engage and educate on this fascinating time in fashion, Sue McLain of Yesterday’s Lady in Beatrice will once again join the event as emcee of the runway show. Volunteer models will grace the runway with the opportunity for attendees to view the designs up close.

Also included with this years festivities will be the vintage jewelry sale offering a plethora of accessories at an affordable price range. A raffle and silent auction will both offer attendees the opportunity to win packaged prizes while also supporting the Historical Society.

For any event related questions please contact DCHS at 402-455-9990 or email Outreach@DouglasCoHistory.org.

See you on the runway!
