Take a trip to the French Riviera without leaving the desert at the Monte Carlo-themed 15th annual Theresa A. Mike Fashion Show May 18 in the Spotlight 29 Casino Showroom in Coachella.

The annual fashion show is a fundraising effort for the Theresa A. Mike Scholarship Foundation, which awards education scholarships to more than 50 students each year.

Hosted by “Valley Views” television host Pattie Daly Caruso, there will be a French-inspired dinner, silent auction, live raffle, and vendor booths offering clothing, jewelry and accessories. Caruso, in her 11th year as host, will be joined by KMIR’s Manny the Movie Guy.

Guests will have a chance to bid on silent auction items such as autographed guitars from Joe Walsh, Randy Travis and Montgomery Gentry. Raffle items include rounds of golf, restaurant gift certificates, and spa packages. Play blackjack or spin the wheel for prizes or shop the vendors selling sunglasses, jewelry, handbags, and candy.

The evening will also feature a special performance by Michael B. Levin, Tribute to Frank Sinatra.

The Fashion Show runway will feature clothing from Caroldean’s, Déjà vu, Francesca’s and Old Navy.

Those who purchase a $100 VIP raffle ticket will receive 25 regular raffle tickets and one ticket for a chance to win five prizes.

Tickets are $55 each or $400 for a tanle of eight. VIP seating is also available.
