PANHELLENIC LUNCHEON….Seventeen outstanding sorority alumni members were honorees at the annual Panhellenic Women of the Year luncheon and fashion show.

They were introduced on the runway set up at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. Each of them carried a single rose.

In the 2008 group were Ann Sherrod, Amy Cook, Traci Spencer, Tonya Ryan, Judy L. White, Laura Gary, Claudia Robertson, Marny Dunlap, Deborah Bruce, Rachel Rudisill, Beth Portman, Suzie Buxton, Eve Patterson, Pamela Ann O’Neil, Betty Crow, Oanh Vo Stanger and Karen Oaks.

Panhellenic President Beverly Woodrome gave the welcome and Meg Alexander was the fashion commentator. Fashions were from Talbot’s, New Balance and Francesca’s Collections, J.J. Kelly Bridal and B.C. Clark Jewelers.

Models were Cindi Anderson, Kevyn Coburn, Vikki Kembel, Andrea Malherbe, Joy Richardson, Ruth Stevenson, Lillie-Beth Brinkman, Margaret Creighton, Angela Little, Irene Megehee, Lauren Rieken, Jane Clark, Mandy Ellis, Susan Love, Ashley Nguyen, Susan Shumate and Kendra Yandell.

Susy Smith was fashion show coordinator.

A Spring showers and flowers theme was evident as parasols and terra cotta pots of blooming flowers decorated the tables. The luncheon proceeds go to scholarships for senior high school students.
