A festive fashion show and luncheon was held recently at the Island Country Club by the Marco Healthcare Auxiliary. Fashions were presented by Chloe’s boutique, Patchington’s and Richard’s Reef. The luncheon included a silent auction and door prizes which contributed to the festive nature of the event. All proceeds went to purchase medical equipment.
The auxiliary is made up of a group of loyal volunteers who make significant contributions to the Center’s success as a quality health care provider. They volunteer endless hours of time to benefit the NCH Marco Healthcare Center by defraying the cost of new equipment.
Dennis Pidherny welcomed the guests; Ann Beck did the invocation. Models hit the stage after lunch and the fashion show commenced. Models meandered through the packed house posing for anyone wanting a closer look. Fashion models were Peggy Aurori, Marion Bearden, Helen Campbell, Elizabeth Milito, Lois Mochnal, Clara Pi, Virginia Rooney, Mary Ross and Amanda Smith. Clothing for men was modeled by Lou Guidarelli, Rudy Milito and Bill Rooney.
More than 50 individuals and businesses contributed to the success of the event.
