Quota International Camden Haven holds fashion parade raising money for local causes

Nearly 80 ladies gathered at the Laurieton United Services Club to see the latest spring fashions and to raise money for charity on September 8.

The annual fashion show, hosted by Quota International Camden Haven, was a chance for ladies in the area to see what is trending sponsored by JA Fashions.

Money raised from the event went towards a camp on the North Coast where the deaf students enjoy activities, catch up with their friends and form long term friendships.

A portion of the money also went to drought relief efforts to help the farmers, said Diane Pope, MC for the event.

“The fashion show has been going for more than a decade and is the local Quota International’s fundrasier to help people in the local deaf community,” Ms Pope said.

“It is a great community event where ladies bring a group of friends and have a fabulous afternoon looking at fashion and enjoying high tea.

“The atmosphere in the room was great, we had live music before the fashion show started and I think everyone had a great afternoon.”

Ms Pope said she attributes the success of the fashion show to the generous nature of the community.

“We raise money to specifically help those in the community who are deaf and the money raised will go towards hosting a camp in Coffs Harbour for our local students,” she said.

“This year also we are donating the money raised from the raffle to the drought relief efforts so that we can do a little bit to help our farmers who are struggling at the moment.

“The committee would just like to thank everyone who came along and made the day a great success.”
