The Darien Community Association Women's Group will host a fundraising fashion show and luncheon Tuesday put on by the Darien Sport Shop. DCA Executive Director Mary Flynn said the fashion shows are always popular events for the Women's Group. "Oh they love it," she said.
The DCA is a nonprofit organization that provides cultural and educational programs for the people of Darien, as well as raises funds for scholarships and other philanthropic work. The Women's Group is a social organization formed four years ago. "There was a senior men's group, and they wanted a women's group to compare," said Flynn. "They meet once a month, and they have lunch. Usually, there's a speaker or a topic or a fashion show."
The Women's Group usually holds two fashion shows a year, one in the fall and one in the spring. It tries to feature a different store's clothes each time. Last year's show featured the DCA Thrift Shop.
"It's going to be a great lunch," said Flynn. "We hope people come. The Sport Shop will be there, and people will get to see what they're doing."
The event is $5 for members, $10 for nonmembers. Reservations are required and must be secured by Friday.
