Covenant Care’s Art of Fashion Spring Preview Fashion Show is now in its 12th year and “has grown tremendously in size and also in the amount of money raised for Covenant Care’s hospice patients. It’s evolved from focus on runway fashions to different facets of fashion and beauty,” says Christie Parker, donor relations manager at Covenant Care.
This year’s event will see an exciting addition to the show, with a pop-up shopping experience for guests when the doors open and prior to the luncheon and fashion show, where you will see “the latest fashion trends with a focus on Pensacola,” says Parker.
The event will feature a bevy of models with both new and returning local celebrity models taking the runway. Returning model, Donna Clark, became involved with Covenant nearly eight years ago to raise funds during another event, Life’s a Dance, where she was a featured dancer.
She then began working with her daughter and husband volunteering for the Eleventh Hour program and has modeled on the catwalk for Art of Fashion many times.
“What I love about the runway is the enthusiasm you create with the folks, not just for the clothes that you are modelling, but for the cause. I stay in a happy mind-set and that flows to others, and it is just a lot of fun for truly a worthy cause in our community,” says Clark.
Other local models include Jenn Bear, Tia Robbins, Sheryl Hanssen, Meghan McCarthy, Angela D’Alessandro, Lisa Mair, Tia Robbins and Bella’s own Kelly MacLeod.
Enthusiasm for the event helped it raise over $35,000 last year to benefit local hospice patients and families in need, and “continue providing comprehensive, compassionate services to our community,” notes Parker. With the exciting changes this year, Covenant Care is hoping to surpass last year’s total and help even more people in need.Read more at:plus size prom dresses
