The evening of Thursday November 22 saw the first of our fund raiser Fashion Shows. Everyone agrees it was a huge success! A big thank you to all those who supported this event by purchasing/selling tickets to family & friends & thereby creating an audience of 140 plus people. A fantastic turnout. Thank you also to those who were unable to sell their tickets but made a donation instead. Early indications are that we have raised close to $1500 so to all those involved a huge thank you.
Of course it would not have been possible without the generosity of Sarah from Sarah’s Boutique whose idea it was to stage a fashion show as a fund raiser for the club. Not only did she supply the clothes & sell tickets she was very generous with her donations to the raffle & around 30 spot prizes. Thank you also to Lily who provided the music for the evening & Sarah’s other 2 staff members who managed to create calm among the chaos of the changing room aka the Men’s Locker room.
Thank you also to the ladies who pushed their own comfort zones to agree to become models, among them Theresa, Jo, Noelene, Margaret O’Carroll, Colleen & Gaye along with co-opted daughters & friends. They all looked amazing as they strutted their stuff along the runway. Photos will be up shortly on our Facebook Page.
Many thanks to Gerd & Jo who created the well received nibbles, ably assisted by Priscilla & Hutch. Thanks to Tony Trent who poured the bubbles & manned the bar & Tony James who also helped. Ian Baxter did a sterling effort selling raffle tickets & Stuart who manned the door. Thank you to Russell Parkinson who wielded the camera to record the event & Garth who set up the sound system for us. Also thank you to Jan & John Gledhill & Noelene who put up the Christmas trees for an added bit of sparkle & set out the tables to enable us to seat so many people while still having enough room for our models.
Thanks also to Janis Browne from Nutrimetics who donated spot prizes & also had a special fundraising offer that netted the club another $80.00.
A huge Thank You all. This is one of the wonderful things about our club everyone is willing to pitch in & help when needed.
Feedback tells us it was a very successful evening and it was great to see our club rooms full with so many well dressed women (and not just the models) and supportive men. It was wonderful to see many familiar faces from seasons gone by and they certainly looked as if they were all enjoying themselves.
See you at the next one !!
