JSPA Fashion Show A Roaring Success

JSerra mom Kathy Guerry models a chic day look.
On Thursday, May 13, 115 JSerra mothers and friends gathered at El Adobe Restaurant in San Juan Capistrano for a day of fashion and friendship. Guests arrived at 11:00 to peruse the fabulous vendors who showcased their wares at display tables in the restaurant’s courtyard. Each vendor donated a portion of their proceeds to the event. Guests also had the opportunity to purchase opportunity drawing tickets to win fabulous gift baskets like a family membership to Renaissance ClubSport in Aliso Viejo and a family photo shoot with Simonson Photographers, to name a few. At noon, guests were invited into the dining room where they enjoyed a delicious lunch and watched other JSerra moms model stylish clothes from Chico’s San Juan Capistrano. The models were primped and prepped by Taylor Hill Salon in San Juan Capistrano.

All proceeds of this event benefited JSerra’s Shepherd’s Financial Aid Program, which awards tuition assistance to more than 100 worthy JSerra students each school year. To find out more about this worthy cause and for information on how to contribute, click here.
