Holiday fashions on runway for Westmoreland Cultural Trust
Soon the holidays will be upon us and, along with finding special gifts for special people, we'll need to find those smashing outfits for all the special events.
Getting a jump on the season, the Westmoreland Cultural Trust presented its Eighth Annual Holiday Fashion Fantasy on Thursday in the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center.
More than 220 guests began the evening in the Laurel-Iris Room for champagne reception and a Rizzo's Malabar Inn buffet dinner featuring seasonal treats including pumpkin hummus.
Then it was on to the auditorium for an all-new runway show with beautiful people modeling beautiful clothing from upscale area retailers. Narrator was Jennifer Miele.
Hosting the festivities was WCT Board Chairman Terry Reese, who made it a family affair by bringing wife Debbie, daughter Heather and daughter-in-law Molly. Molly's daughters Riley and Lucy took to the runway with the other child models.
Putting it all together were event co-chairwomen Jane Church and Susan Dickson-Houser, with Bonnie Miliotis in charge of the bold red, black and white holiday decor and Peg Colosimo in charge of production.
Committee members on-scene included Jan Taylor-Condo, Jill Briercheck, Susan Ciarimboli, JoEllen Numerick, Mary Lou Hacker and Lyn Drylie. Champagne steward was Keith Biskup.
Also seen: Pat Condo, Patti Buhl, Janice Crawford, Michele Bononi, Pam Neiderheiser, Mary Baloh, Rebecca Sexton, Megan Henson, Gary and Linda Hayden, Kathy Hager, Michele Stewardson, Elizabeth McCall, Larissa McGrew, Kelly Ferraro, Peggy Tremba, Becky Brammel, Paula Pedicone, Pauline Douglas, Barbara Rozik, Vonnie Goldsborough and Marty McGuire.
