The 9TH Annual Golisano Children’s Hospital Fashion Show, benefitting Pediatric Behavioral Health, was held on Dec. 3, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point. Highlights included a “Flower Wall” and silent auction, the luncheon and the main event — a fashion show featuring trends from fine stores such as Evelyn & Arthur, Brodeur Carvell, Gigi’s Children’s Boutique, Jennifer’s, Patchington’s, Dillards, White House Black Market and many others. Particularly endearing is the use of Golisano patients as models of the children’s fashions. This annual fashion show is a hallmark of fundraising for the Children’s Hospital.
An Evening Under the Shadow Wood
Students in the Estero High School Culinary Program put their skills to the test to prepare a meal for the Third Annual Evening Under the Shadow Wood fundraising dinner at Shadow Wood Golf & Country Club on Dec. 17. The sold-out event included a one-hour competition team demonstration. Students created a three-course meal as guests watched this live cooking show. The meal consisted of filet mignon, a signature salad and a trio dessert. This unique dinner fundraiser provides travel funds for the EHS culinary competition team to compete in Orlando.
