Three Days Till The Fashion Show!

I would like to invite you to point and laugh. And it's for a good cause! Dave, Ben, Kiera and I have once again put our pride aside to be models for the Fourth Annual Fashionable Growth Fashion Show and Silent Auction on Thursday, November 13, 2008 at 5:30pm. This is a fantastic project that we have been working on as members of the Family Advisory Board for the St. Joes NICU since one of our members convinced us that our little group could pull off a fashion show. Now four years and four fashion shows later, we have raised thousands of dollars that have been used to enhance the experience of families in the NICU. This year's event is being held at Washtenaw Community College, Morris Lawrence Building. It is a huge auditorium to fill so please, come one, come all! The evening will begin at 5:30pm with a silent auction (featuring around 80 generously donated items) and appetizers. The Fashion show will begin around 7:00pm (barring blizzards) where you will get to clap, sigh and maybe even cry but leave full of hope and wonder for the amazing children and families that have been touched by the NICU experience. The evening wraps up with a little dessert and a lot of check writing for the winners of the wonderful silent auction items. Back to those seats we would like to fill...we would love to see your faces looking back at us from the audience so we are not giggling by ourselves while we try to model beautiful clothes and wrestle our two monkeys (Ben and Kiera) at the same time. Tickets are $25 dollars this year and TOTALLY worth it! Drop me a note so that we can be sure that the auditorium is filled with just our friends and loved ones since we would hate to look silly in front of anyone else : )
