BAY HEAD — The Women’s Guild of All Saints Church in Bay Head is preparing to host its 38th annual Fashion Show luncheon fundraiser, with the goal of collecting thousands of dollars for local charities.
“It seems like everyone has a good time and we get a good crowd every year,” said Chris Kyse, a member of the guild. “It is a lot of work. We all breathe a sigh of relief at the end of the event and then we go to a BlueClaws game the next day to relax.”
The fashion show will be held at the Bay Head Yacht Club on July 27.
Four area stores will offer outfits for members of the guild to model. The four stores participating include J. McLaughlin in Bay Head, Bree Ana in Point Pleasant Beach, Andi’s in Bay Head and returning for the second year in a row is Carrie Dunham Boutique from Bay Head. The stores will also offer discounts to attendees both at the event and instore.
“Our members model and they get about three to four outfits each,” said Ms. Kyse. “The stores have participated in the past…it is a mix of items but it is really summer fashion going into fall.”
Along with the show, the yacht club also will provide lunch for attendees while the models walk around the venue. Lunch will include a cold cucumber soup, two types of quiches and strawberry shortcake for dessert. For those interested, wine will also be available for purchase.
The event will also offer a 50/50 raffle and a gift basket raffle of 10 themed baskets valued at $100 each.
“There are lots of opportunities to go home with a little something extra as well,” said Ms. Kyse.
This year, the event will be raising funds for local charities including Bay Head Fire Department, Dottie’s House, Ocean County Harbor House, Point Pleasant Beach First Aid and Emergency Squad and St. Gregory’s Pantry. Some of the money will also be set aside for scholarships that are given to local students graduating from high school.
