Today: M-A Fashion Show hits runway


Seniors at Menlo-Atherton High School will take center stage Saturday, Feb. 23, in "IM-Agine," the PTA's biggest annual fundraiser, at the Performing Arts Center on campus. The show, featuring fashions and dance, will be staged three times -- at 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

A luncheon will be seerved before the 1 p.m. performance with catering by Renee Moore, a Menlo-Atherton parent.

Starring more than 200 members of the senior class, the fashion show has been a tradition at M-A for more than 37 years, dating back to the days when the fundraiser was known as the "Pumpkin Lunch."

It will be a repeat performance for Charleston Pierce, who is runway coach for the second year. A former model, Mr. Pierce leads talent workshops for models and is an event host and fashion show producer in San Francisco.

M-A seniors will be modeling clothes from Active Agie, Alys Grace, American Apparel, Bloomingdale's, Cassis, Gitane, Helm of Sun Valley, H&M Hillsdale, Leaf and Petal, Macy's, Men's Warehouse, Nike, The North Face, Novelle Bridal, Patrick James, Pickled, Romi, Selix, Tommy Bahama and Vince.

Co-chairs for this year's fundraiser are Renata Mullen, Julie Brody, Susan Benedick and Jill Smith. Nona Ybarra, owner of Captivating Dance, will again direct dance numbers in the show.

Tickets range in price from $5 for students to $85, which includes reserved seating, the luncheon and the show. Email for more ticket information.
