Seniors enjoy an afternoon of fashion and fun!

Over 100 guests spent an afternoon enjoying a look back at the history of women in America as told through fashion when they attended a luncheon hosted by the West Shore Senior Center, located in the Knickerbocker Apartments in Bay Village. The special afternoon was part of a fundraising event designated to help generate revenue to continue to provide services for area seniors.

Thanks to the generosity of West Bay Care & Rehabilitation Center, the program was a great success. The West Shore Senior Center relies solely on donations for its daily operations and was very grateful to West Bay who offered to provide the entertainment for this important program.

"They were so wonderful to me when I went there for rehabilitation," gushed Joanne Rubino, a resident of the Knickerbocker. "Not only did they give me my strength back, but now this beautiful, wonderful afternoon. We all had so much fun and are so grateful!"

Resident Diane Vincent made all of the centerpieces for the tables and then went to work on a special hat to wear to the luncheon. She was equally thrilled with the show. "I smiled so many times when I saw some of those outfits and the memories came flooding back. What a treat!" she said.

The afternoon show was professionally staged by Goodwill Industries. The lunch was catered in-house thanks to donations from members of St. Barnabas Church in Bay, who work year-round in support of the senior center. Area benefactors helped sponsor ticket sales and made sure everyone had a chance to attend, regardless of income.  

The West Shore Senior Center is so grateful for all support received to make this event such a success.
