The Junior Board of Christiana Care presented a fashion show luncheon in celebration of its 125th anniversary. The affair featured fall outfits from area boutiques modeled by Junior Board members, vintage clothing displays provided by members, friends and Rags to Riches Vintage Consignment shop. The exhibition included a 1938 silk/satin wedding gown, a 1930s second-wedding gown, and children’s and adult clothing and accessories from the 1890s through the early 20th century. Auctions and prizes donated by local merchants added to the excitement. The event raised $3,500 to benefit the First State School at Christiana Care, which gives children and teens with serious illnesses the chance to attend school with peers while receiving the medical treatment they need. Junior Board gifts to First State School topped $10,000 so far this year and will support educational field trips, family fun night dinners and “Bravo Bucks” positive behavior reinforcement for students.
