The Elks Lodge was lively Tuesday afternoon, as the Jefferson Healthcare Hospital Auxiliary held a fashion show and membership meeting in the building. Volunteers served as models, waiters and organizers, providing entertainment and lunch for the attendees. Local clothing stores provided winter fashions for the models.
The Jefferson Healthcare Hospital Auxiliary is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to raise funds to help support better health care services for the local community. The money they raise goes toward the purchase of new equipment for departments in the hospital. They also provide scholarships for local students who plan to work in a health-related field. The Auxiliary holds a variety of fundraising events, but three major ways that they raise funds are by operating the hospital gift shop, by hosting an annual historic homes tour, and through memorial donations.
Homer Smith Insurance was well-represented at the Auxiliary’s fashion show and membership meeting, with Jim Maupin serving as waiter and Cynthia McNulty modeling clothes from the Maricee store. It was a fun event and Cynthia captured some of the highlights (see photos in link below).
