If you could talk to Emmy Award winning actress Sela Ward, what would you talk about?
One lucky shopper will have a chance to do just that if their name is picked during a grand prize drawing for lunch for two with the Lauderdale County native.
Loeb's clothing store in downtown Meridian is hosting a fund-raiser Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. benefiting Hope Village for Children, the home for abused and neglected children Ward helped found.
Loeb will donate a percentage of Saturday's sales to Hope Village for Children. In addition to the grand prize drawing of lunch for two with Sela Ward, an autographed picture of Ward, an autographed "Once and Again" script and an autographed "Once and Again" poster will also be given away.
Additionally, the first Hope Village for Children t-shirt will be available to the public for purchase.
The t-shirts, on sale for $14.95 in sizes small to XX-large, are available in conjunction with the grand opening of Hope Village for Children, set for later this month.
Robert Loeb's great-grandfather started the clothing business in 1887. The store moved to 2209 Front St. in Meridian in September 2000.
