School fundraiser to show passion for fashion

smb fashion fundraiserLIMERICK model agent Celia Holman Lee is lending her support to a fashion show fundraiser in aid of a proposed new County Clare school.

The Holman Lee Modelling Agency will showcase fashions from a number of boutiques in the Mid West region at the Bunratty Castle Hotel on Thursday September 18 for the benefit of the Sixmilebridge National School Development Fund.

The evening will begin with a pre-show reception at 7pm, followed by the glamorous fashion show, as well as displays in beauty and healthcare.

Sixmilebridge NS is planning to build a new school to cater for the village’s increasing population and has currently raised more than 40 per cent of its €150,000 target.

The fashion show is the latest in a series of fundraising activity for the school development fund, following on from a poker classic, concert, golf classic and signed jersey auction.

Tanya Walker, chairperson of the fashion committee, was thrilled to get the Holman Lee agency on board for the night, saying: “We are really pleased and we welcome the presence of the Holman Lee Modelling Agency, the country’s leading model agency, at the upcoming show.

“It will be a great night of fashion and maybe there will be a few surprises to add to the enjoyment of the evening. It’s the must-go-to event for this autumn and the first winter and autumn show in the area.”

School principal Gareth Heagney thanked event sponsor Shannon Precision Engineering at the fashion show launch at the Bunratty Castle Hotel last week and he outlined the importance of the new school for the community of Sixmilebridge.

“The most important priority for the school at present is to finalise the provision of adequate educational facilities for the people of Sixmilebridge through the construction of the new school building as soon as possible.

“The Department of Education and Skills has approved a major school building project for Sixmilebridge NS to replace the current building, which was constructed in 1934, and additional prefabricated classrooms.”
