“The Shell Point and Bell Tower Shops Fashion Show has always been a popular event and this year we’ve added some new surprises,” said Lynn Schneider, assistant vice president of sales and marketing for the resort community. “Of course, the fashion show is always the main attraction and this year, more than 30 women of all ages will be modeling the fashions, which will include a variety of spring and summer wear, cruise and resort styles, casual day and evening wear, plus updated looks for the office.

“Guests will not only enjoy a delicious lunch while previewing the gorgeous fashions, but we have also added a new feature, the Enchanted Garden Boutique. Local vendors will have unique and exquisite items on display for purchase before and after the show including a variety of home accessories, gift items, fashions, purses, and jewelry that our guests can peruse and purchase.”

Each guest will receive a special gift bag as well as the opportunity to win exciting door prizes. “We are giving out some amazing door prizes this year and all of our guests will have multiple opportunities to win, but everyone who attends will walk away knowing that they helped to support a very worthy cause and that makes it even more enjoyable,” said Schneider. Proceeds from the event will go to provide compassionate care for seniors with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

The fashion show will be held in the Shell Point Auditorium located on The Island at Shell Point. Tickets are $35 and must be purchased in advance by calling Mary Franklin at (239) 454-2152.
