THANK YOU EVERYONE!
Our thanks to the many wonderful sponsors, artists /designers, models, and volunteers for making this year’s Salinas Trashion Show, held on September 6th at the Corral De Tierra country club a huge success. This year’s theme, “Las Vegas”, brought together everyone’s favorite Vegas stars in a fun filled show—Cher, Lady Gaga, Liza Minnelli and more. Of course, Elvis was there singing, dancing and swooning the ladies. The lunch show opened with Britney Spears (Mendy Amaral) dancing to the song “Baby One More Time”. Oops, she did it again as Britney (aka Mendy) entertained the audience with details on the 20 gorgeous one-of-a-kind outfits designed by local artists. The dresses were made from recycled and repurposed materials. The Master of Ceremony was J. Alan Fagan, a local business development consultant with music provided by Mr. Kool himself, DJ Kevin. Highlights from the show include the Rat Pack (Paul Farmer, Frank Savino, Maddox) singing “Luck Be a Lady”. Photos of the fabulous dresses will be posted very shortly. Questions?
