Blossoms in the Snow is an outfit worn by Gene Marshall.
Designer: Tim Kennedy
Company: Ashton Drake
To her fans, an actress's life appears to be one glittering, fun-filled social event after another. But fame also brings tremendous opportunities to help those who are in the greatest need.
Gene is always willing to lend her support to organizations dedicated to helping American war veterans. Giving her time, money, and considerable influence is a small price to pay to help those who risked their lives to defend this great nation.
When the War Veterans Organization asked her to be the Guest of Honor at their New Year's Eve Charity Ball at the Raleigh Theatre in New York City, she was happy to oblige. Entering on the arm of her father, Dr Marshall (himself a former captain in the Medical Corps), she was greeted by a standing ovation from the distinguished guests. Her speech poured from the heart, stirring the audience until handbags were opened for hankies, and wallets were opened for generous donations. "We have risen from the terrible winter of world war. Like blossoms in the snow, your presence here tonight brings new hope to the heroic men and women who fought to defend this land from tyranny."
Gene's gown was a stunning statement in itself...thanks to Gene, the War Veterans reported their most successful fundraiser ever!
