FASHIONABLE FUND-RAISER TO AID MEDICAL ALLIANCE

ZCMI and Vogue magazine are presenting the New York Collections for fall 1994 at a luncheon and fund-raiser fashion show Saturday, Sept. 10, in the Little America Grand Ballroom.

ZCMI's association with the venerable fashion magazine dates to 1945, and the Salt Lake department store has been providing the fashion show for the Salt Lake County Medical Alliance for more than a dozen years.Mingling with the professional models on the runway will be a cadre of physicians wearing the latest fashions. And for the first time, joining the male doctors will be five women physicians.

Julie Enslin, alliance chairwoman for the event, noted that among the modeling physicians are a brother and sister team as well as a husband and wife. "Dr. Scott Hurst, an anesthesiologist, and Dr. Barbara Hurst, an ob-gyn, are brother and sister. Drs. Scott and Linda Leckman, who will also be modeling, are married," she said.

The fund-raiser will begin with a social hour at 11:30 a.m. followed by luncheon at noon. Tickets for the event are $25 each and can be purchased at the Salt Lake Downtown ZCMI or at the Cottonwood credit office. For reservations or more information, call 487-4415.

The Salt Lake County Medical Alliance promotes health awareness and community education through the following health programs:

- "Choices" - a child-abuse and child-neglect prevention program. Trained alliance members present educational materials to students ages 13-18 to increase awareness about these growing social problems.

- "Here to Help" - a teen pregnancy prevention program. This presentation is given to junior and senior high school students, emphasizing life choices.

- Health Careers Day - an annual event for all state high school students, presenting career opportunities in health-related professions.

- The Ronald McDonald House - the alliance supports this home-away-from-home open to parents of gravely ill children.

- Breast Cancer Task Force Coalition.

- Medical student scholarship - three scholarships have been given so far this year to a senior University of Utah medical student who has graduated from a Salt Lake County high school.

Enslin said that many area hospital administrators support the fashion show by purchasing a table. "We also have families and friends who have been going to the luncheon for years," she said.

Assisting her in preparing for the fashion show are Alice Brown, chairman for physician models; Martha Siggard, hostess chairman, and committee member Virginia Tolton.
