The Parent and Child Foundation
Autumn Fever Luncheon & Fashion Show

Fall Leaves

Congratulations to The Parent and Child Foundation on a successful, thoroughly enjoyable Autumn Fever Fundraiser!

The luncheon took place at Crystal Fountain on Nov. 9th, 2016, where hundreds of attendees enjoyed a delicious lunch and spectacular Fashion Show. 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. It was an exciting and entertaining afternoon! You can see a short video of the event here.

The proceeds are kindly being donated to The Markhaven Foundation and Giant Steps. Markhaven would like to thank The Parent and Child Foundation for all their hard work, their generosity, for the work they do in the community and for helping us to make Markhaven the best it can be for our residents.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
