A fashion show with a twist is scheduled Saturday night at the Benton Event Center.

The theme of "Re-Fashion Bash" is "Where Green is the New Black."

Saline County Regional Solid Waste Management District is sponsoring the event.

Tiffany Dunn, marketing coordinator for the district, said the fashion show is set to begin at 6 p.m. and a recycled art showcase hosted by the county's Youth Environmental Ambassadors teams will follow. Doors of the center will open at 5 p.m.

Dunn said the fashion showcase will highlight students of varying ages as they "walk the runway turning trash to treasure."

The models will be showing their original fashion designs created from recycled materials, she added.

Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 at the door and may be purchased at the district office located at 114 W. Sevier St. in Downtown Benton.
