On Saturday, Sept. 22, Easter Seals DuPage and the Fox Valley Region will host their 32nd Annual Luncheon and Fashion Show at Drury Lane in Oak Brook.
This event provides fun for the whole family. Easter Seals clients will show of their achievements on the runway as attendees cheer them on. They will share their inspirational stories as they cook up some cuteness on the runway.
Proceeds benefit the mission of Easter Seals DuPage and the Fox Valley Region to enable infants, children and adults with disabilities to achieve maximum independence, and to provide support for the families who love and care for them.
The day also includes raffles, lunch and a professional fashion show. The professional fashion show will be by Fashions With Flair; and Sylvia Perez, ABC 7 news anchor, will serve as the guest commentator.
All proceeds from the 32nd Annual Easter Seals Fashion Show will help ensure children and adults with disabilities receive the life-changing therapy services they need and help them gain maximum independence.
“This wonderful event gives our client the unique opportunity to highlight their accomplishments by allowing them to step into the spotlight in front of family and friends,” said Theresa Forthofer, president and CEO of Easter Seals DuPage and the Fox Valley Region. Easter Seals recognizes Pacella Trucking Express Inc. as the “platinum sponsor” of the fashion show, and “Look What’s Cooking” and The Naccarato Family Fund of the DuPage Community Foundation as the “gold sponsor.”
