Fash­ion­able fundraiser a hit

Geraldton Guardian - - News -

De­spite the win­try con­di­tions, there was plenty of warmth among those who gathered re­cently for an evening of fash­ion and en­ter­tain­ment.

Staff from Hot­locs Hair Body and Soul turned the Beach­lands sa­lon into a cat­walk which hosted mod­els wear­ing the lat­est fash­ions from Fiori, Haz­ard Cloth­ing and Shoes and Cor­ner Surf Shop.

La­tia Robin­son, Jesse Muir and Eloise Kirk en­ter­tained the crowd of around 80 with mu­sic.

Lo­cal busi­nesses contributed goods and ser­vices to the event which helped to raise funds for Mid West Char­ity Be­gins At Home.

Spe­cial guest Bianca For­rester told those gathered how hum­bled her fam­ily was to have been the re­cip­i­ent of a gen­er­ous do­na­tion from the lo­cal char­ity when her son Eli was very ill.

“It’s a very im­por­tant char­ity that gives di­rectly back to the com­mu­nity,” Ms For­rester said.

The Ger­ald­ton char­ity aims to cre­ate hope and of­fer fi­nan­cial re­lief for res­i­dents of the Mid West res­i­dents who are in need due to se­ri­ous ill­ness.

It was named not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion of the year at this year’s Mid West Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence awards.
