Missed Fashion Week in Manhattan? No worries, you can still catch up on the latest styles when Staten Island University Hospital's Service Auxiliary rolls out their annual fashion show on March 10 at The Vanderbilt at South Beach.
Hospital physicians, staff and volunteers will take to the runway wearing trend-setting outfits from Ultimate II, Children's Place, Dress Barn, The Garage and Angel Bridal. Proceeds from the event will benefit hospital programs and projects.
In 2012, the Service Auxiliary helped SIUH purchase medical and surgical support equipment for both hospital sites, as well as donated $6,000 to further a breastfeeding initiative and $2,000 for a bereavement tree for families who lost a child from miscarriage, stillbirth or complications during delivery.
The SIUH Service Auxiliary is the oldest continuous auxiliary in the United States, celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. To kick off this milestone, the Auxiliary will wrap up the fashion show with members of the SIUH family wearing period clothing from Historic Richmond Town.
Tickets for the fashion show are $60 for adults and $25 for children under age 10. The event, which includes lunch, runs from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Vanderbilt is located at 300 Father Capodanno Blvd. For more information, please call 718-226-8305 or 718-226-9799.
