On Saturday, June 6, the David & Margaret Auxiliary will celebrate its 38th anniversary by hosting the “Fun in the Sun Fashion Show and Tea” on the main campus at 1350 Third Street in La Verne from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. For tickets ($38 per ticket) and sponsorships (from $50 to $1,000), call Ms. Macalino at (909) 596-5921, Ext. 3180 or contact her via email at MacalinoT@DavidandMargaret.org.

The models will be girls from the school, and Macalino is working overtime to ensure their day is indeed special, bringing in a deejay and a special catwalk for the girls to glide down. “We’re going all out with wardrobe and makeup,” Macalino said. “We want the girls to really feel special and loved.”

The girls will also be able to keep their fashions. Of course, such an event could not occur without strong community support. Boni Wish, owner of Wishes Boutique, is presenting some of the fashions. Other businesses stepping up to the plate early are Peek a Boo Children’s Boutique; K.I. Patton, CPA; Ellise D. Gregoire, Custom Jewelry & Designs; Renee Futter, Independent Consultant and Executive Area Manager for Arbonne; Maureen Aldridge, Chief Executive Officer of the Claremont Chamber of Commerce; Scott Anderson, Industry Event Service; Jeff Brang and Nicholle Hernandez of Exit Realty and Dennis Gutierrez of Financial Credit Union. American Apparel in Claremont is also providing fashions and accessories for the girls.

David & Margaret’s mission is to empower children, youth and their families through culturally diverse services that foster emotional, educational, spiritual, and identity development.
