Charity seeks clothes for children
Clothes to Kids is looking for long pants for boys sizes 4 to 18 and for girls sizes 5 to 16; the charity provides clothing for eligible school-age Pinellas County children and is experiencing a shortage, which means that some youngsters will not have a full wardrobe. New or freshly laundered gently used clothing can be dropped off at the store, 1059 N Hercules Ave., Clearwater, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The charity also is accepting cash donations that will help supplement the inventory of donated clothing and help buy warm clothes and jackets. The mailing address is P.O. Box 6123, Clearwater, FL 33758-6123. Visit www.ClothestoKids.org or call 441-5050.
Winter gala today at Vinoy ballroom
Clothes to Kids will get some help from the Florida West Coast Chapter of the National Association of Catering Executives, which will present its "A Winter Wonderland" gala from 6 to 10 p.m. today in the Grand Ballroom of the Renaissance Vinoy Resort, 501 Fifth Ave. NE, St. Petersburg.
The evening will offer dinner, dancing, entertainment and a silent auction. Those attending are asked to bring a new jacket to fit youngsters ages 5 to 18.
