The Colony Club of Ocean City will hold its 2022 fashion show fundraiser and luncheon at 1130 a.m. on June 12 at Greate Bay Country Club, according to a Sunday news release.
The Colony Club is an affiliate of the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Club, a group that promotes community service, education and leadership in women’s groups.
Colony Club President Diane Root stressed that the group was “non-sectarian, non-partisan (and) non-profit” and urged people to attend the show and support the club’s community projects.
“The fashion show, is our main fundraiser for local scholarships,” Root said in the news release. “Our members model fashions from the Ta Dah shop, a delicious luncheon is served and attendees have the opportunity to participate in various fundraising activities, such as boutique tables, gift baskets and a 50/50.”
Proceeds from the show help the club award two $1,500 scholarships and five $250 ones to women graduating from Ocean City High School. It will also fund $50 certificates to four eighth graders graduating from the local Intermediate School.
