The San Marco Council of Catholic Women (SMCCW) recently presented its 40th Fashion Show to a sellout crowd of over 300 attendees. This year’s theme was “All Decked Out – A Fashion Cruise,” where the hall of San Marco Catholic Church was transformed, depicting a huge illuminated cruise ship on stage. Guests were entertained by Rosetta Stone with delicious gourmet lunch catered by Frisco’s. SMCCW members modeled fashions for casual cruise wear provided by Beach Daisy and Patchington’s, and formal wear by Kay’s on the Beach.
Kay Folsom of Kays on the Beach was honored for her insight on founding this Fashion Show over 40 years ago. Kay claims her enthusiasm, faith, love of life, people and fashion are the key and heart of all she does.
Many of the attendees went home with awesome prizes as the event included 11 door prizes, 56 themed basket raffles, six decorated fashion hats and a spectacular silent auction item. The silent auction item, “All Hands on Deck,” was a two-hour cruise on a private yacht for 12 with lunch and drinks donated by Chuck and Sue Thomas.
Many thanks to the door prize donors provided by Islander Pool and Patio, Starbucks, Sandpiper, Lily Pulitzer, Georgie’s, Your Island Home, CCW Sister, Marco Consignment, CCW Gift Shop and Keep in Touch.
“God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things” can be attributed to the talented SMCCW volunteers who supported this event to raise funds to be awarded to worthy scholarship recipients, as well as, to local charities.
