Tuesday night there will be vintage clothing with a '60s look showcased at the annual VintageNOW fashion show.

Now in its third year, the show continues to grow in popularity. The inaugural event was held at Buckners, and last year it was moved to The Venue to accommodate the more than 900 people in attendance. Expecting an even larger crowd this year, the show will be at the old Steve & Barry's store in West Park Mall.

Attendance is not the only thing increasing. After raising more than $30,000 last year, organizers are striving for $50,000 this year. The funds go to support Safe House for Women, an organization that supports women victims of domestic violence.

There also will be a silent auction, photo booth and student performance. Karen Bolin will be the guest speaker. VintageNOW calendars will be sold to benefit the Safe House, and for those who can't make the show, the calendars also will be sold at Pastimes Antiques and the Safe House for Women Thrift Store.

It's important to have an event that supports the Safe House and the women it reaches. We applaud all those who make this fun fashion show happen.

Tickets are available at the Safe House for Women Thrift Store, Pastimes Antiques and online at www.vintagenowfashionshow.com.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m.
