HOUSTON, TX---Paris might be the fashion capital of the world, but don't tell that to residents of Eagle's Trace, the Erickson Living retirement community in West Houston.
Eleven residents and three employees walked the "runway" in the 1st Annual Fashion Show on November 16th. Over 175 guests attended the sold-out event, which served as a fundraiser for the Eagle's Trace Benevolent Care Fund.
The Fashion Show enjoyed community support as the clothing store Stein Mart (Highway 6 North & West Little York location) provided the apparel adorned by the models. Store manager Kim Warner served as the celebrity emcee.
Following lunch prepared by the Eagle's Trace Catering Team, guests viewed fall fashions ranging from suit coat and tie combinations to sweaters perfect for the holiday season.
"I had never done anything like this before, but it was very fun" described Eagle's Trace resident Lois Roddy, one of the models. She showed off a colorful cowl neck sweater wrapped around a beautiful cardigan. "Everyone deserves applause for the positive spirit in which the fashion show was run."
Marilyn Black is the chairman of the Resident Life Committee at Eagle's Trace. She noted the dual purpose of the occasion. "No matter what your sense of style, the fashion show had something for everyone," said Ms. Black. "Many thanks to Ms. Warner and her team at Stein Mart for their creativity. Their participation allowed us a fun way to support a worthy cause."
The charity event raised over $500 for the Benevolent Care Fund. Eagle's Trace offers a "home for life," providing the confidential assistance that allows residents in need to remain at the community, assuring that they will receive the care they deserve.
