Jewish Pavilion Fashion Show dressed for success
March 11, 2022
Nearly 200 guests gathered at the 11th Annual Jewish Pavilion Fashion Show at Dillard's Altamonte Mall on Feb. 24, 2022 to raise funds for senior programs at elder-care facilities throughout Central Florida. It was a morning of friendship, fashion, food, and fun, and the first time the fashion show was sold out.
"It was a beautiful morning," said Julie Levitt Bain, who was honored at the event for her work as a program director. "I cannot express my appreciation for the love and support I felt from The Jewish Pavilion and all that came to the fashion show."
A handful of Pavilion volunteers and board members graciously served as runway models, including Jane Edelstein, president of the Friends of the Jewish Pavilion Board; along with Brenda Fisher Wetmore, Ruth Darvin, Faye Novick, and this year's chair of the Fashion Show, Bethanne Weiss.
Local community leaders also walked the runway including Ali Poleies, Shari Klafter, Shifra Yachnes, Diane Vivian, Jill Cousins, Cindy Price, and Erica Weitz.
Weiss showed appreciation for the sponsors that provided food and beverages: Halifax's coffee station, Acute Homecare's Kosher table, Savannah Court's mimosas, Gentry Park's fruit, cheese and cracker platters, and the delicious yogurt parfaits from Counseling Resource Center.
"I was so honored to chair, model, and invite all my BFFs to one of my favorite FUN and charitable events," Weiss said. "A great time was had by all, especially me!"
Thank you to the donors of gift baskets and gift certificates for the silent auction.
Thank you, Dillard's, and Nancy Nguyen, the store manager.
