The feel of spring was in the air as temperatures in the 80’s teased McKinney residents with spring fever and lured 100 guests into the Eldorado Country Club to attend the annual McKinney Ladies Association Fashion Show and fundraiser Monday evening.
The annual event features a silent auction, dinner and fashion show with proceeds being donated to a charity, this year’s charity of choice being Community Lifeline Center.
Inside the venue, spring fashions were the hot topic. Following dinner, volunteer models, all members of the local community, donned clothing supplied by Cynthia Elliot, a women’s clothing boutique located in downtown McKinney and graced the crowd with a sneak peak at some of spring’s hottest trends. Lucsious reds, tempting organges and vivid tuquoise tantalized, while classic black and white pieces looked crisp and smart.
Co-chairs for the event were Tammy DeWet and Connie Hollstein.
DeWet said she was pleased with the end result. “We had a room full of guests and most of the auction items were bid on. I was very pleased with the way the event turned out and I hope that CLC will be as well,” DeWet said.
