Fash­ion fun for char­ity

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

RO­TARY Club of Como mem­bers will strut the cat­walk, all in the name of char­ity.

The club’s sec­ond an­nual Fash­ion Show will take place at the Man­ning Me­mo­rial Bowling Club on April 28, with money go­ing to The Es­ther Foun­da­tion and Zonta House Refuge As­so­ci­a­tion.

Club fundrais­ing di­rec­tor Alan Ram­say said more than 220 peo­ple came to last year’s event, which raised $7500.

“We are part­ner­ing with O’Briens Cloth­ing Com­pany again; they have been very help­ful by sup­ply­ing gar­ments for the show and for the raf­fle,” he said.

“There was a fan­tas­tic at­mos­phere last year with about two-thirds of the au­di­ence not be­ing club mem­bers. The mod­els are mem­bers of the club; they are not pro­fes­sional.”

Mr Ram­say said the event was one of the club’s two main fundrais­ers each year, with its Wes­ley Car Show in Oc­to­ber d467631 be­ing the other one.

“We also do park­ing for events with the money go­ing to or­gan­i­sa­tions such as Ngala, Manna, Car­son Street School and the Man­ning Men’s Shed,” he said.

“There will be a raf­fle, mu­sic from He­len Shanahan and the MC on the night will be ABC pre­sen­ter Di Dar­mody.

“The rea­son we chose The Es­ther Foun­da­tion and Zonta House Refuge As­so­ci­a­tion was be­cause they care for women.”
