The Clermont Woman’s Club (CWC) presented its annual Salute to Fashion show on Saturday, November 14, 2023, at the Wesley Center of the First United Methodist Church in Clermont. The event was a fundraiser for the club’s scholarship program and other community projects.
The fashion show featured clothing and accessories from local boutiques and vendors, such as The Vintage Exchange, The Loft, The Dressing Room, and The Jewelry Box. The models were members of the CWC and their friends and family, who walked the runway with grace and confidence. The audience enjoyed seeing the latest trends and styles for the fall and winter seasons, as well as some timeless classics.
The show was emceed by CWC president Linda McNulty, who introduced each model and outfit with humor and enthusiasm. She also thanked the sponsors, donors, and volunteers who made the event possible. The show was coordinated by CWC vice president Carol Spaldi, who also served as the stage manager and music director.
A fun-filled afternoon for a good cause
The fashion show was not only a display of fashion, but also a celebration of friendship and community. The attendees were treated to a delicious lunch catered by The Crooked Spoon, a local restaurant that specializes in gourmet burgers and sandwiches. They also had the opportunity to participate in a silent auction, a 50/50 raffle, and a door prize drawing. The prizes included gift baskets, gift cards, jewelry, and more.
The proceeds from the event will benefit the CWC’s scholarship program, which awards scholarships to local high school seniors who plan to pursue higher education. The CWC also supports other community projects, such as the Cooper Memorial Library, the Clermont Arts and Recreation Center, the South Lake Animal League, and the Clermont Police Department.
