Focus Paihia Op Shop Fashion Parade 2019

We had a wonderful fashion show, unfortunately we didn’t get the support that we usually do and numbers were down.

The BAY OF ISLANDS YACHT CLUB was our sponsor for the venue and the first drink.   GREENS sponsored some of the food and JAN MOLLOY came to the rescue in the kitchen with the wonderful help of MARLENE, HANCOCK and SUE PIN, Jan also sponsored the rest of the wonderful food.   Two lovely young ladies from QRC helped by serving food, thank you COURTNEY and TIANA you were a great help.
There is a lot of work to make the fashion show a success and I couldn’t do without the help so THANK YOU ONE AND ALL – BRUCE GORDON and his two young ladies who set up the chairs and stage.  My right hand man GEOFF, PHIL HOPKINSON, and PETE SECCOMBE for setting up. Behind the scenes – LYN CREE, SANDY JENSON, GILL SECCOMBE, and PATSY UMEROA.  Tickets and raffle sales MARGARET GRAY, PAULINE MILLS, and VAL SCAMPTON.   Photos by TAMARA REBOURGEON.

Our beautiful models were CAT LOGAN, KATJA CAULTON, LUCY DOULL, CARMEL NICKLESS, MASAMI GRIFFINS, DEANNA GRIFFINS, and RHONDA BLAKIE.
We can’t forget the handsome males DANIEL HILL and BEN PEARSON with a guest appearance  of GEOFF.
NICK LAIRD for the music once again, this makes the show as the models “strut their stuff” down the catwalk.

Raffle prizes were sponsored by LESLIE CHURCHILL of MUMMA MADE CAKES – cake. COUNTDOWN – vouchers, KAREN at THIRTY30 – voucher, SUMA SUMA – voucher, KING WAH – voucher, and SARAH at ITA IKA – massage.

To the guys who came and helped us move chairs and tidy up at the end thank you so much we do appreciate it.

The Fashion Show is our main fundraiser for the year and if we don’t get the support we can’t give as much money into community projects.  Those that came had a great night with lots of laughter.
