3Cs fashion show today at The Resort

The 3Cs "Spring Into Fashion" show will be at 11:30 a.m. today at The Coeur d'Alene Resort. Tickets at the door are $40.

The 11th annual event includes a silent auction, raffle and luncheon. Funds that the group raises go to a multitude of Kootenai County charities.

The event's fashion coordinator, Marie Widmyer, owner of Marie's Boutique and Marmalade clothing store in Coeur d'Alene, is selecting chic apparel from more than 20 local shops that will hopefully entice folks when they see the duds on the runway.

This year will again include the Glitz and Glamour raffle, where folks have a shot at winning a $1,200 package including a designer handbag, checkbook clutch, and lunch and spa treatment for two at The Coeur d'Alene Resort.

Last year, the 3Cs, or Cancer and Community Charities, donated $75,000 to more than 25 charitable organizations.

Absentee voting

is now available

Monday marked the first day that Kootenai County residents could vote absentee for the May 25 primary election.

Voters can either fill out a ballot in person, or mail in a request form for a ballot.

The county Elections Office on 3rd Street is the only location where folks can vote in person, said Elections Supervisor Carrie Phillips. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Folks can only pre-register to vote until April 30, Phillips said.

Otherwise they can register the day of the election at a polling booth, she said. Proof of residence is necessary to register.

The final day to vote absentee is the day before the election.

Million dollar golf tourney is May 21

The second $1 million shootout golf tournament to benefit ElderHelp of North Idaho is set for an 8 a.m. shotgun start May 21 at Avondale Golf Course.

The $100 fee includes a round of golf, car and lunch. A few lucky golfers will have the chance to shoot for $1,000,000.

The National Association of Health Underwriters is co-host of the event that attracted about 75 golfers last year.

ElderHelp is a nonprofit that provides services to Kootenai County's low-income seniors.
