Women Defining History Luncheon and Runway Show
April 8 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Women Defining History Luncheon is at capacity! Thank you for your interest.
Join us as we present our 11th annual Women Defining History Luncheon and Runway Show on Friday, April 8, 2022 at the Field Club of Omaha.
Each year this event honors a local woman who inspires, challenges, and serves as a model to strengthen our community through philanthropic outreach, historic preservation, or courageous efforts with our Women Defining History Award. We are delighted to announce the 2022 Women Defining History Award honoree will be Kathy Gross. Kathy has stepped up to help enumerable nonprofit organizations in our community. Her willingness to pitch in and help wherever there is a need has benefitted Douglas County Historical Society, Salvation Army, The Nebraska Humane Society, Heartland Family Services, Joslyn Castle, CHI Health and more!
During these challenging past couple years, we find ourselves at home more than ever. For many, loungewear is our new uniform. This year, we will look back to loungewear of decades past, from embroidered linen nightgowns of the Edwardian era, to mid-century quilted housecoats, to frilly lingerie sets of the 1970s. Settle in and get comfortable as fashion historian Sue McLain of “Yesterday’s Lady” leads us on a fashion journey through the decades. Our mission here at DCHS is to invite the people of Omaha to celebrate their local history and learn more about their home.
Our annual vintage runway show is one way we connect with our community and bring history to life in a fun and unique way. Proceeds from the event will help support artifact preservation.
Doors open at 11am for the pre-event Patron Champagne Reception, which includes early access to the vintage jewelry sale, raffle, and silent auction. Doors open for general admission ticket holders 11:30 am, with the lunch and presentation starting at noon.
