On Friday, Feb. 4, the Glen Cove High School Class of 2011 held its annual Senior Fashion Show. With the help of many, it was an extremely successful benefit that will help increase the funding for end of the year activities for our seniors. With over 200 people in attendance at the high school auditorium and 52 seniors modeling in the show, this event would not be possible without the tremendous efforts of our many volunteers and vendors.
As co‑chairs for the fashion show, we would like to especially thank all of the parents who volunteered to help with the show in addition to our wonderful fashion show Steering Committee: Diane Bruschini, Teresa DiPaola, Shirley Melillo and the Senior Class advisor, Jason Bieder.
The show went smoothly thanks to everyone who contributed. Thank you to the following stores for lending their clothes to be modeled by our students for the night: S&S Tuxedos, Victor Talbots, Sundown Ski and Surf Shop, Spotlight Italia Boutique, Estelle’s Dressy Dresses, 2 Be Seen, Annie Sez, J.McLaughlin, The Annex Shoppe, Lester’s, Teen Pix and Charm Furs.
