Albany - - The Albany Area Association for Retarded Citizens is using music, fashion, and tea to bring awareness to their mission.

The group held it's first Christmas Tea and Fashion Show.

The Albany Chorale performed for the crowd and people got an opportunity to bid on items donated by local merchants.

Organizers say it's a fundraiser that will help AARC continue to provide services for the citizens with disabilities.  

"The funds that come from this support people with disabilities such as our Special Olympics which we don't have funding coming in other than from the community and fundraising that we do so our athletes can participate in Special Olympics," says Director Annette Bowling.

Organizers would like to make the Tea and Fashion show an annual event.
