St. Madeleine Sophie's Center
Haute With Heart Fashion Luncheon
The Haute With Heart Fashion Show August 22nd, 2009 was 500 plus strong with guests supporting St. Madeleine Sophie's Center's (SMSC) multitude of programs benefiting adults with developmental disabilities.
The day served up a bountiful silent auction, a live auction, a delicious luncheon of herb and mixed green salad followed by a Signature Chef Steve Black chicken breast at host Sheraton Harbor & Marina, and then quite the Fashion Forward production by Leonard Simpson.
There was a stunning collection by Q of Qadir Hamidi of hand stitched couture, timeless Kate Spade, opulence from Le Bel Age, the very fun and wearable Tommy Bahama clothing, some elegant fun from Ooh La La Boutique, dazzle from the Diamond Boutique, GSB Menswear, Hermes, Custo Barcelona, and some very leggy models.
There were the four legged kind too.
Sutherland the SMSC Therapy Dog strutted his Standard Poodle stuff. Kima, the Arthritis Dog Honoree and Service Dog strutted her royal robes by Jemima Dutra. Kima was accompanied by her mother and father.
SMSC students including Charlie Lizarraga, Clayton Hauer and Chelsea Voisard wowed the audience with their rendition of We Are The World. They were accompanied by the SMSC Dance Troop.
Among the many applauding were Honorary Chair Sally B. Thornton, looking lovely in lavender suit and chapeau we might add, SMSC President Roger Roberts, SMSC Executive Director Debra Turner-Emerson, Valerie Cooper, Chair Judy Klareich, May Zawaideh, Muffy Walker, Cheryl Mitchell, Anita Bye, Diana Cavagnaro, Joan Bowes, Elizabeth McKinnon, Collette Stefanko, Mary Walker, Jeanne Jones, and one of the few token males, Scott Johnston.
