Service is in Fashion “Down Under”

When the Quota club of Goulburn, New South Wales, planned a fashion show to benefit local cancer patients, the planning committee hit upon a GREAT IDEA—they included Cancer Support Group members in the show as models.

This beautiful venue provided the perfect backdrop for the fashion, food, and fun.

A lovely Sunday afternoon was set aside for fashion, food, and fun to benefit the Oncology Department at St. John’s Hospital and its Cancer Support Group. More than 100 local community members attended the event, which featured outfits for the upcoming season with hilarious commentary. After all, laughter is the best medicine.

Attendees participated in a raffle, and many bought the outfits presented during the show. Local papers and radio stations covered the event, giving the Quota club extremely positive publicity.

Preparations behind the scenes—as captured here and in the following photos—helped make the event a great success.

“The members of Quota International Goulburn have a feeling of satisfaction in a job well done,” says club member Dorothy Keegan. “For us, it was a bonding exercise.”

A Cancer Support Group representative attended the following club meeting as guest speaker. Adds Dorothy, “They are grateful that we care.”
