FORT MYERS, Fla. (March 24, 2011) – More than 500 guests enjoyed the afternoon festivities at Shell Point’s Enchanted Garden Fashion Show which raised more than $5,000 to provide compassionate care for seniors with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
This year’s theme, Enchanted Garden, was a perfect way to show off the various spring and summer fashions while promoting the Bell Tower Shops. Several stores in Bell Tower participated, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Talbots, Cache, Draper’s and Damon’s, Swim and Sport, Banana Republic, Patchington’s, Trader Rick’s, and SOMA.

“The Shell Point and Bell Tower Shops Fashion Show has always been a popular event for our residents and guests,” said Lynn Schneider, assistant vice president of sales and marketing for the resort community. “This year we added the element of a boutique for guests to shop before and after the show, and it was a hit! Local vendors brought unique and exquisite items for guests to browse over and purchase, which included spa products, jewelry and clothing.”

“Guests enjoyed a delicious lunch while previewing the gorgeous fashions, which included a variety of spring and summer wear, cruise and resort styles, casual day and evening wear, plus updated looks for the office,” said Schneider. “Each guest also received a special gift bag as well as the opportunity to win exciting door prizes.”
