'Twilight' themed event set for Aug. 7

The J.C. Penney salon at Columbia Center and beauty store Sephora are holding a Twilight-themed event Aug. 7 to benefit the Edith Bishel Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Kennewick.

"The Twilight Extravaganza" will run 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and work on look-a-like characters in preparation for the final Twilight release party, scheduled for Nov. 15 at the Red Lion Hotel Columbia Center.

Iconic Shadow Photography and JK Life Photography will be taking photos of Twilight fans and their favorite characters for a $5 donation to the upcoming fundraiser.

J.C. Penney and Sephora are the Twilight Forever Fashion Show sponsors for the fundraiser, and they will create fashions, hair design and makeup for the Twilight look-a-like characters.

The 25 look-a-likes will perform skits from all five Twilight movies.
