Dahling, you look mahvelous!
The Morristown High School graduating class of 2011, along with the Project Graduation Committee will be exhibiting their fashion sense as they present the 2011 annual Fashion Show Dinner and Basket Raffle on Wednesday, March 16, at the Birchwood Manor, in Whippany.
The event will help raise the funds necessary to provide seniors with a safe, drug-free and alcohol-free venue to celebrate their graduation night. Not only will this even benefit this years seniors, funds also go toward next year's graduating class.
The fashion show will feature 14 boys and 14 girls from Morristown High School modeling some of the latest casual and evening wear from a long list of vendors from the Morris County area–Century 21, Cozy Tuxedo in Morristown, Say I Do Bridal Boutique in Caldwell, and Blush in Madison will be some of the few to be displaying their fashions via participating Morristown High School models.
Besides fashion, the committee received some support from other local vendors including Laboratory Hair Studio in Morristown. Makeup artist Debbie Stewart will be providing their services on the evening of the event. Other vendors like Elliott’s Flower Shoppe in Morristown will be providing eye popping décor, while Crystal Bay Group/Corporate Food Service in Parsippany will be satisfying the appetites of those in attendance.
LeeAnn Barone and Nancy Colvin, co-chairs of MHS’s Project Graduation Fashion Committee, along with several of the female student models met up at the Blush Boutique last week to pick out a few pieces for the show. Blush owner Stephanie Crowley was more than happy to help out MHS select some styles.
Crowley is also the gift basket coordinator for the event. “We have received enough donations through community and personal outlets to make over 90 baskets," she said. "Each Basket will be will be worth from anywhere between $250-$1200. In other words, when someone wins a prize, it’ll most likely be a good one.
“We were able to include some amazing prizes this year, like a Mac laptop, and a couple of iPads," Crowley said. "We are giving away manicures, pedicures and Tiffany’s Jewelery. A lot of the baskets have services, local food donations and gift certificates to some of the best local restaurants."
“We need to acknowledge our students and students parents as well," Colvin said. "They are all volunteering their time, and they are all working hard to ensure that this show goes perfectly. If it wasn’t for them and all their assistance we wouldn’t have this event.”
