Fire on the Runway

Trudy Raymond, 69, slipped on a shimmering dark blue evening dress at Audrey’s, a Boutique, on a recent afternoon, and slowly pivoted in front of a mirror.

Raymond will be a model at Fire on the Runway, an annual Inland Northwest Red Cross fundraiser featuring local firefighters and others.

Raymond is also a member of the fashion show’s planning committee. It’s a labor of love for her: She knows firsthand what the Red Cross can provide.

“We lost our home in the 1987 Hangman Hills fire,” she said. “My husband and I were able to get home, grab our two kitties and we ran for our lives through smoke and flames.” More here. Cindy Hval, SR
