The numbers are in and the fall Estate Treasures Fashion Show was a success, raising more than $22,000 for hospice care and grief support in Queen Anne’s, Kent and Caroline counties, provided by Compass Regional Hospice. More than 260 people attended the event.
Estate Treasures, an upscale resale shop at 17 Kent Towne Center, is an operating unit of Compass Regional Hospice. The shop has been raising money for Compass Regional Hospice for more than 25 years. It features gently worn or carefully used donated treasures. Proceeds from the store help offset unfunded hospice care and grief support.
Each October, Estate Treasures hosts a fashion show at Prospect Bay Country Club, featuring clothing from the shop. Attendees shop the clothes modeled during the show, as well as at an on-site upscale boutique.Guests are treated to a luncheon provided by Prospect Bay Country Club, and this year, Estate Treasures hosted a live auction, which included a jewelry-making luncheon and a luxury cabin stay during ski season in Utah.
This year’s theme for the fashion show, which included Estate Treasures volunteer models, was “Traveling Around the U.S.A.,” and comprised clothing for all occasions tailored toward different regions of the United States.
The 2019 Estate Treasures Fashion Show will be held on Monday, Oct. 14.
