Models from the Holman-Lee agency will showcase the latest fashions from more than 10 boutiques and shops in the Limerick, Shannon and Ennis areas at a fundraising fashion show in Bunratty next week.
The event, which will also include displays in beauty and health care and a pre-show punch reception, will be held at the Bunratty Castle Hotel on Thursday next, September 18 with proceeds going to the Sixmilebridge National School Development Fund.
“We are really pleased and welcome the presence of the Celia Holman-Lee Agency, the country’s leading model agency, at the upcoming show. It will be a great night of fashion and maybe there will be a few surprises to add to the enjoyment of the evening. It’s the must-go-to event for this autumn; the first winter and autumn show in the area,” according to chairperson of the fashion committee Tanya Walker.
Speaking at the fashion show announcement, school principal Gareth Heagney praised Shannon Precision Engineering for “the company’s support and commitment to the school.”
“The most important priority for the school at present is to finalise the provision of adequate educational facilities for the people of Sixmilebridge through the construction of the new school building as soon as possible,” he said.
“The Department of Education and Skills has approved a major school building project for Sixmilebridge NS to replace the current building, which was constructed in 1934, and additional prefabricated classrooms,” Mr Heagney continued.
The target for the fundraising drive is €150,000 and more than €60,000 has been contributed to date.
Fashion show tickets are on sale locally and at the school and further information on the event and how to support it is available from Tanya Walker by phone on 087 2838482 or 061 369544.
