Fashionable fund-raiser

Published in the Warrnambool Extra, March 13, 2013

WOMEN can have a great night out, support local retailers and raise money for a good cause at the same time.

Lyndoch Auxiliary is holding a fashion parade this month that will showcase a range of clothing, hats and accessories by local designers.

All proceeds from the night will go towards purchasing a piano for Lyndoch Living hostel residents, after their last piano broke.

Lyndoch Auxiliary president June Steele said hostel residents just loved their music and never forgot the old tunes.

“A new piano will really enrich their lives,” she said.

Ms Steele said the fashion parade was an exciting way to support local retailers.

“It’s very important that we support our local shops in Warrnambool, otherwise they will close down,” she said.

“That’s why we are holding the fashion parade – not only can the local stores show all their beutiful clothes, but the public can also support the staff and residents at Lyndoch.”

Boutique designers on show include Armadio, Sue Younis MIllinery, Jaz Boutique, Oranges and Lemons, and Glamgirl.

The event will be held at the Carmichael Room at the City Memeorla Bowls Club (on Cramer Street, Warrnambool) on Thursday, March 21.

Doors open at 7.30pm and there will be prizes and raffles on the night.

Guests can expect a gourmet dinner, and will receive a complementary drink upon arrival, including champagne and juice.

Tickets are $25 each and are available before March 19 from all featured stores, as well as the main reception at Lyndoch Living.
