***SOLD OUT***



The Colours of Autumn Luncheon and Fashion Show was a huge success! Attendance exceeded our wildest expectations at a sold-out 500+ guests.

Attendees walked away with gifts such as tote bags from our fashion retailers and chocolates from Aunt Sarah’s in addition to incredible prizes and silent auction items. The vendors set out beautiful tables with a varied array of items. Christmas shopping started early for many of our guests!

The lunch and fashion show were enjoyed by all. Our volunteer models were spectacular, some of whom were Markhaven staff and family members. They had a lot of fun and really rocked that runway!

All funds raised will go directly to enhancing our Home for our residents including adding to our resident programs, upgrading the secure unit, refurbishing the resident sunrooms, and new equipment for the nursing department.

Thank you to everyone who played a part in this fun event

and we extend our gratitude and appreciation to our 500 guests!

The runway was filled with beautiful fashions by Rena Artesa, Eleven Joseph, Jillian’s, 3D Art Design and Royal Fur Club. There were various boutiques set up for some fun and interesting shopping, as well as a silent auction, raffle and door prizes.
