Fashion Show Fundraiser for Mama Vilma’s Home a great success

Volunteers working together to bring Mama Vilma's Family Home for the abused and neglected to a reality are ecstatic and overjoyed with the huge success of their first ever fundraiser. The Fashion Show held on February 19th, 2011 at the Coco Locos Bar was well attended with some 250 attendees.

With a welcome by Miss San Pedro 2010-2011 Ms. Natasha Stuart, the program got to a bright start. With models ranging between the ages of 15-70, males and females - there was something in the fashion show for everyone.

The evening was filled with entertainment, starting with the models parading fabulous casual and swim wear fashion. This was followed by an intermission and entertainment by Lara Goldman, fire dancer extraordinaire. The second leg of the fashion show saw the models showing off their talent in elegant evening wear.

Apart from the presentation of the exquisite fashion, which may all be purchased at local boutiques, the evening included the auction of a painting by Tyrell, an all day Catamaran trip onboard the Marley Jean (owned by Shelley and Dave Huber) and the silent auction of a beautiful painting by Kirt Cruz, which was a crowd's favorite. Throughout the night guests enjoyed delectable finger foods, door prizes, great music, entertaining performances and of course, fashion!

The president and organizers of the Mama Vilma Fashion Show wishes to thank the following individuals: For fashion: 4:20 Men's Clothing, Island Vibes, Moon Dancer, Island Gear, Sarai's, Blu, Top Notch, D-Sea, Pretty Ethnic, Mambo Chill, Reef Boutique, Yvonne Bradley's fashions and Addy's; for food donation: Fido's, Banana Beach, Legend's Burger House, Annie's Pastry, Caye Wind, Emma Varella, Dana Palma, Atlantida Eiley, Shelly Huber and Francisca Acosta.
