It’s time to get excited for Dunedin Youth Guild’s 39th annual Scholarship Luncheon and Fashion Show.
The luncheon, called The Spring Fashionista Frolic, is taking place at 11 a.m. Saturday (March 3). Held at Our Lady of Lourdes Conmy Center in Dunedin, the event will be filled with fashion, food and an array of prizes.
The Dunedin Youth Guild gives 100 percent of the luncheon’s proceeds to its scholarship recipients, and if you have never been to this event before, it’s a fun way to raise money for local teens who are headed off to college. The Guild’s scholarship program is available for Dunedin students who are in the top 25 percent of their high school class, have above-average SAT scores and can demonstrate proficiency in writing.
The show this year will include style collections from Dillard’s at Countryside Mall, and the audience will be addressed by keynote speaker Ashleigh Guinn, who was a Dunedin Youth Guild Scholarship recipient from 2007 to 2011. Guinn will begin medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in August.
Additionally, the luncheon will provide guests with the opportunity to win door prizes and other gifts, including a homemade quilt by local artist Patricia Ross and lithographs by St. Petersburg artist Mike Williams.
If a good cause doesn’t persuade you to attend and the prizes don’t tempt you to go, then, if for nothing else, come out to see our city and county officials strut their stuff on the catwalk.
