HCRW Annual Fall Fashion Show Benefits Veterans

Monday, October 16, 2017

Fall was in definitely in the the air Saturday, Oct. 7, for the Hamilton County Republican Women's Annual Fashion Show. All proceeds from the show benefit our local Chattanooga Veterans through The Samaritan Center.

Fashion Show Committee Chair Patsy Henry, said, "We get to do this benefit every year for the veterans because we have wonderful sponsors and leaders in our community, some at the local, state and national level, willing to be involved.  Stein Mart stepped up again this year providing their trending fashions and stylists.
Morning Pointe of Collegedale at Greenbriar Cove really kicked in support by adding their fantastic team led by Jenny Mathis McFarland, Director of Events and Rob Pollard, and offered for a complete venue. Congressman Chuck Fleishmann delivered opening remarks and local officials modeled with club members and their families, because our military veterans are so worthy of the help we provide. We all do our best to make this fashion show, relaxed, family friendly and F-U-N. One model, when asked to show off his pink socks by the MC, quipped to the audience, 'This is not your typical fashion show.'"


Models this year included: Sabrena Smedley, Hamilton County Commissioner and husband Mark, Larry Henry, Circuit Court Clerk, Gary Henry, Attorney at Law, Caroline Henry, Bo Watson, State Senator,  Jeff Atherton, Chancery Court Judge, Kevin Wilson, Judge, Nicole Osborne, Attorney at Law, Emerson Russell, local businessman, Michelle Harstine, Field Representative for Congressman Chuck Fleishmann.

HCRW club member models included: Sharon Blankenship and husband, Scott Fiedler, Ellen Dye, Dee Harnett with her granddaughter,  Marleny Lozano, Catherine Cate White, (Attorney at Law) and Marsha Yessick, (HCGOP Chairwoman).

HCRW Committee members were: Patsy Henry, Fashion Show Chairwoman, Faye Robinson, HCRW President, Beth Williams, Ellen Hardy, Linda Shriver Buckner, Billie Whiteside, Hope Crye, Ellen Dye, Sharon Blankenship, Billie Weiss and Jenny McFarland of Morning Pointe. A special thank you to Matt McFarland, for sharing his beautiful voice with our audience.
