Allyson Rae, NBC News Chief Meteorologist and LVCC Board Member, presided over the fashion show at Windstar Country Club on January 17th, which offered both casual and elegant fashions to fit any occasion. 

LVCC raised an amazing $23,000 to support its critical mission of literacy.  Thanks especially to our fashion show partner, Petunias of Naples, and to the generous sponsors of the event:  the Jackler family; Bill and Jackie Mears; Peter and Mary Zimmerman; Custer Construction; American Property Management Services; Kelso Huffman and Huffman Wealth Advisory;  Bond, Schoeneck and King, Attorneys;  Naples Best Addresses; Caple Landscape Management; Elaine Sulat of Bangles and Beads; Teresa Kolar of Sweet Mare Studio; and PNC, the event sponsor. The irreplaceable Jackie Mears, who has been putting this event on for four years, is a resident of Windstar Country Club and helped make this fundraiser a success!

A special shout-out to the models that also helped sponsor this event:  Joy Buck, Liz Freher, Marilynn Kempf,  Jill Kenyon, Lee Kraus, Jo Maeder, Wendy Needham, Shelly Plakans, Sandy Keeler, and Bonnie Slobodien.  It was a great day to support LVCC that does so much to change people’s lives for the better!
