Angela Barnshaw of Cherry Hill has been named the committee chair for The Salvation Army’s fourth annual Garbage Bag Gala Fashion Show, which will be held on May 16 at the Marian House in Cherry Hill.

The Garbage Bag Gala is an annual fashion extravaganza hosted by The Salvation Army where professional and novice designers take recycled and unconventional materials to create beautiful fashions to be displayed on the runway.

She resides in Cherry Hill with her husband and two children.

“I feel The Salvation Army is the most effective charity in America,” Barnshaw said. “Any chance I get to help them, I take it. I hope to make the Garbage Bag Gala the marquee event of the year for fashion enthusiasts in South Jersey.”
