Oakmont roadway becomes fashion runway

If the white tents and arrival of 350 people to the streets of Oakmont on Aug. 22 weren't enough to pique the curiosity of the locals, the sudden presence of a few willowy models guaranteed that the gawking had begun.

With the transformation of Allegheny River Boulevard into a runway complete, Carabella's ninth annual Alzheimer's Association Benefit fashion show easily lured the likes of prexy Gail Roddie-Hamlin, Kiya Tomlin, Courtney Murray, Adrienne Lear, Angela Grimm, Mary Jo Cr owe, Jody and Jimmy Schwartz, and Kathy Aiken outside for cocktails and closet enhancers. The evening also included strolling magic with Lee Terbosic, whose tricks included — what else? Money burning a hole in his wallet.

Created in honor of her mother, the event remains near and dear for Carabella owner Carol Kinkela.

“We have a goal of $100K. ... I'm not going to stop before we get it,” she said.
