Entitled "Diana, Princess of Wales: Dresses for a Cause," the exhibit will be the world's largest display of gowns owned by the princess, featuring 30 designer dresses. Event partnerships with Munroe Regional Medical Center's Munroe Foundation and The Villages Regional Hospital Foundation will support breast cancer initiatives in Central Florida.

"This is a unique opportunity for Appleton visitors to see exquisite fashions that belonged to an inspiring cultural icon and support breast cancer programs at the same time," said Appleton Museum Director Robin McClea.

In addition to the exhibition, the museum will host a gala on the eve of the opening. Nigel Arch, director of Diana's former residence Kensington Palace, and Darren McGrady, an author and Princess Diana's personal chef, will also appear at the event.

The exhibit has its origins 10 years ago, when the princess sold dozens of her gowns in a charity auction at Christie's of New York eight weeks before her death on Aug. 31, 1997. Organized by Suzanne King, founder of the Pink Ribbons Crusade, "Dresses for a Cause" combines King's passions for the life of Princess Diana and the fight against breast cancer. King, who lives in Austin, Texas, and Ocala, Fla., owns six of the auction gowns - one of the largest private collections in the world - as well as several of the princess' earlier dresses.

The exhibit will run through Dec. 30. Admission is $12 for adults; $10 for seniors over 55; $8 for museum members, reciprocal members and groups of 20 or more; $7 for students and $5 for children up to age 12. Limited service of full English tea will be available for $15 per person, reservations required. Tickets can be purchased at the museum or by calling 352-291-4455.

Owned and operated by Central Florida Community College, the Appleton Museum houses more than 16,000 works of art and artifacts. The museum is located at 4333 E. Silver Springs Blvd., in Ocala, seven miles east of Interstate 75 on State Road 40.
