Estate Treasures Hosts Annual Fashion Show

JudyAnderson-model-ET-Fashion-showEstate Treasures Hosts Annual Fashion Show

On Tuesday, October 14, the American Legion in Stevensville will be transformed into a fashion runway when volunteers from Estate Treasures host their annual fashion show. The event is one of the primary fundraisers for Estate Treasures, an upscale resale shop located in Chester, which operates for the benefit of Hospice of Queen Anne’s.

The fashion show begins at 11:00 am with a cash bar and time to shop in the boutique, which will be stocked with designer clothing, handbags and footwear. Lunch will be served at noon.

A 50-50 raffle and a silent auction add to the fundraising potential of this event.  Sharon North, chair of the Estate Treasures Fashion Show committee, says, “This is the first time we are including a silent auction. Our guests will bid on a collection of gift baskets filled with goodies such as wine and chocolates. Local merchants have also donated gift certificates and jewelry to the auction.”

Guests have one more opportunity to support Hospice of Queen Anne’s by purchasing homemade baked goods from the Estate Treasures “bakery” that will be set up at the event.

The main event begins immediately after lunch. Eight models, including staff from Hospice of Queen Anne’s and Estate Treasures volunteers, will showcase a collection of casual and formal wear that preview fall fashion trends. Some of the themes for the featured ensembles will be Urban Cowgirl, Girls Night Out, Nautical and After Five. Models will also show off cruise wear, outer wear and active wear.  Linda Sheets, co-manager of Estate Treasures, says, “Models will be decked out with all the trimmings to include hats, handbags, footwear, furs and jewelry.”

The grand finale of the Estate Treasures Fashion Show will showcase the Hot Tamale Vollies (short for volunteers), showing off their dancing skills to a lively salsa beat.

Fashion show tickets are $30 and can be purchased at Estate Treasures, 17 Kent Town Market in Chester. For more information call 410-643-7360.

On June 12, many of the 152 volunteers who operate Estate Treasures met at the Elks Lodge in Stevensville to celebrate their successes, elect new board members and recognize volunteers who have reached service milestones.

Estate Treasures, an upscale retail shop located in Chester raises funds for Hospice of Queen Anne’s. Since opening 23 years ago, Estate Treasures has contributed $1.8 million that has been used to provide hospice care and grief services to people of all ages in Queen Anne’s County.

Addressing the volunteers, Heather Guerieri, executive director of Hospice of Queen Anne’s, said, “The money you raise at Estate Treasures makes it possible for people who might be unable to pay for our services to receive care at our Hospice Center and in their homes. We also invest your donations to provide grief counseling in the schools and at our summer camp for children, teens and families.”

Guerieri continued, “The impact that Estate Treasures has on the community is huge. People love to shop at Estate Treasures. They also like to donate their clothing and household items, knowing that they are giving to a good cause. I smile to know that Hospice of Queen Anne’s and Estate Treasures are one and that our cause is the same.”

Eileen Nonemaker, chair of the Hospice of Queen Anne’s Board of Directors, added, “Volunteers usually give their time, talent or treasures to support an organization. You are unique because you give all three. At every board meeting we give you a round of applause when we hear about the work you do on our behalf.”

Kathy Ciambruschini, president of the Estate Treasures Board of Directors, announced that Estate Treasure sales to date in 2014 were 15 percent higher than the same period in 2013. “That means we have been able to give Hospice of Queen Anne’s $50,000 so far this year,” she said.

“We are confident that we will exceed $100,000 in total donations before the year is over.”

Service pins were presented to the Estate Treasures volunteers who had completed service milestones. Recognized for completing their first year of service were: Lynda Bounds, Marge Carlson, Carol Greenlee, Kathy Roberts, Betty Robinson, Kathleen Scheuerman, Phyllis Radlinski, Wanda Shlagel, Cyndee Hughes, Betsy Mackin, Mollie Quinn, Rosalind Laskin, Sadie Groves, Jane McCullough, Savannah Scott, Diane Stevens and Bonnie Walters.
