All Saints Regional Catholic School 18th Annual Fashion Show

Strike a pose! On Thursday, April 19, eighth-grade students from All Saints Regional Catholic School in Glen Cove showed off the latest spring styles at the school’s annual fashion show fundraiser.  Stepping into the sold-out event, held at Sans Souci in Sea Cliff, had the same glitz and glamour as most weddings, straight down to the men in tuxes. The event attracted 220 guests who were treated to a delicious three-course meal while enjoying views of the Long Island Sound.

This year’s celebrity model was Andrea Correale, owner of Elegant Affairs, the catering and event planning business based in Glen Cove, who told the audience a motivational story about her career path, stating that becoming successful requires a combination of knowing what you want to do, working hard at it and persevering to overcome any obstacles. She noted that she started her own business by renting out wait staff for private parties, and had 35 people working for her and around 500 clients by the time she finished college. For the students’ benefit, she emphasized the importance of finding something to be passionate about and sticking with it.

The fashion show held bittersweet memories for many of those in attendance, as this year’s show was dedicated to the memory of Debbie Orlando, a mother of two students who was always very involved in the show. According to her husband, Al, the annual fashion show was something she looked forward to every year, and was always excited to participate in. Her two daughters, Briana and Jacqueline, were able to model clothing for the first time this year, escorted by their father. The dedication was marked by an abundance of kind written sentiments about Debbie in the journal as well as spoken words at the start of show.

On the runway, more than 30 models strutted their stuff, with parents escorting most of the students. The men were dressed in tuxedos provided by Victor Talbot, and all of the women’s fashions were provided by Annie Sez of Glen Cove and Locust Valley shops Ooh La Shop, Pomponner and Worth Repeating. Norma Iona of Parragon Salon in Greenvale did the make-up for the models, and the bulk of the jewelry was provided by Lia Sophia. Guests danced to the music provided by Party with ESPO and all of the photography services were donated by Gold Coast Productions.

Rosemarie Sherry, the fashion and model coordinator, said, “It was a night that the community came together for, providing their goods and services for the good of our children and school; all rose to the occasion, from the students and parents to local businesses. Along with chairpersons Maria Messineo and Lynda Capobianco, many women gave endless time and effort to wrap the gift baskets and coordinate the details. All in all, the success of the evening was due to the volunteer efforts of so many that truly brought together family and businesses to support a very worthwhile cause.  That is the spirit of a family community, and being part of All Saints Regional Catholic School.”

It was the second annual goal setting workshop at Glen Cove High School on Tuesday, Oct. 14 and both the board of education and the public came up with some sound ideas for the district. School Superintendent Maria Rianna presented a slide show of four main areas that are the focus of district goals.

 

“We began this process last year and these goals are representative of what the community wanted to see,” said Rianna.

Glen Cove residents may see a 1.64 percent increase in the tax levy next year, the amount proposed at last week’s public hearing. Mayor Reginald Spinello and the Glen Cove City Council held an initial reading of the proposed budget for 2015, and will take final vote on Tuesday, Oct. 28, at the next city council meeting.

 

“It’s very easy for a first time mayor to raise the taxes and blame it on a prior administration, and that is not what I am doing,” said Mayor Spinello. “In the past three administrations there were budgets with increases of  almost 28 percent to down to 12 percent, but it’s a different time now...I think that the residents are certainly going to feel relief. I put together a budget...that I believe is fair and reasonable and a good budget.”
