Fremont Symphony Guild and the Fremont Sunrise Rotary Club will host their third annual fashion show fundraiser Elegance of Fall at the Castlewood Country Club on Saturday October 30th from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
The Fremont Symphony Guild is a group of music lovers who actively raise funds for the Fremont Symphony Orchestra and its programs. The Fremont Symphony Orchestra, formed in 1964, has been enriching the Tri-City community with excellent music for 41 years. Besides music concerts the Symphony also sponsors the Family Series, which features talented local artists and promotes and celebrates the cultural diversity of Fremont and the San Francisco Bay Area. The orchestra's educational outreach program includes performances at local schools and organizes the Young Artist competition which aims to assist them in launching their musical careers. Winners of the competition are featured as soloists in the Fremont Symphony's regular season.
The Fremont Sunrise Rotary is a philanthropic organization that contributes to non-profit organizations serving the community. Projects in the past have included SAVE, medical care for the homeless, American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, Tri-City volunteers and High School Students.
The Elegance of Fall fashion show will feature celebrities from the Tri-City area as models. The models will be showing fashions by Alexis h of Walnut Creek Men's Warehouse, Newpark Mall. Among the male models are Dominic Dutra, Captain Robert Nelson, Art Huezo, Mike Kearns, and John Mena, while the female models include Bernie Dutra, Jean Louie, Edith Pietkiewicz, Audrey Kearns, Marie Smith, Arlene Richards, Shannon Pheley and Becky Perry. Apart from a fashion show, the event will also have a silent auction. "We are excited that Clint Eastwood sent us a signed movie poster which we could auction off." Says Joan Kimber, one of the Guild members and organizers. "And it is exciting to also have a signed memorabilia from Steve Martin." Proceeds from this event will benefit the Fremont Symphony and the Fremont Rotary Sunrise projects in the Tri-City area.
