Fountaincrest, a luxury style all inclusive rental community complex for seniors more than 50 years of age, is holding its second annual Fashion Show on Thursday, May 9 from 2 p.m. to around 3:30 p.m.
"It is the second year that we have done a show and because of its success last year, we decided to continue a show with the latest fashions," said Denise Talt, community outreach director of the complex located at 1230 Taylor Lane Extended, just off Homestead Road.
The show is open to the public and to the members of the senior complex and is held in the large dining room of the facility. With limited seating, it is important for the public to RSVP at 239-303-1230. The fashion show is free.
Denise Talt, right, the community outreach director at Fountaincrest in Lehigh, and Debbie Whiteaker, the activities director, worked together to plan the upcoming fashion show at the complex on May 9.
There will be about ten models including residents of Fountainhead's staff and others.
Pianist Elijah Hamilton, who provided music last year, is back again to entertain during the show.
Last year, some 75 or more people attended the show. Models mingled and walked through the crowd to show the newest fashions available.
"It was really a hit with those who came to the show," Talt said.
There will be wine, cheese, fruit and chocolates for those who come to the show, she said.
"We turning the dining room of Fountaincrest into what we are calling Fashion Mecca," Talt said.
The moderator for the show will be Debbie Ruff, manager of Anthony's Lady Apparel in fort Myers, an upscale store for today's fashions.
"This is all in honor of Mother Day which is on May 12, so we are hoping a lot of mothers and their daughters in the area will be able to come," Talt said.
Those who attend will be able to be seated at comfortable tables throughout the dining room. Others may spill over into the entrance area of Fountaincrest in the area of the big fountain that greets visitors.
Talt said each woman model will wear three different outfits during the show.
Fountaincrest has been in Lehigh for eight years and is the community home of more than 110 residents.
