NJWC Fashion Show a Big Success

Last week’s storm left HSP without the ability to update our blog for several days, but that certainly didn’t stop noteworthy events from happening. Among the many exciting things that happened in the past few days was the Naperville Junior Woman’s Club Fashion Show! The show was the club’s 40th annual fashion show, which was held at the Drury Lane Theater on Saturday the 20th. The show’s theme was Four Decades through Hollywood, and featured fashions from local stores and designers modeled by children, members of the Naperville Junior Woman’s Club, and professional models. As the chosen charity for the club’s Community Improvement Project, some of the funding from this event will go directly to the needy seniors and children served through our many projects.

            On top of all the fashions being displayed, the event also included a lunch, a silent auction, a raffle, and after party. Kristin Maxwell, HSP’s Assistant Executive Director, said the silent auction was “absolutely huge” with more than 100 different items. The raffle was also very exciting with grand prizes being spa packages, diamond earrings, a fur, and more. Over 400 people attended the show including Naperville Mayor George Pradel. The Naperville Junior Woman’s Club really went to great lengths to put on such an amazing event. As one of the benefactors of the event HSP wants to thank issue a huge thank you to them, and everyone who made the event such a success!
