The DWA Ciao Bella Fashion Show

On Thursday, November 16, the DWA will proudly present its 16th annual fashion show. Stunning fall and holiday season fashions from Dillard’s will be strutted on the runway by Deercreek residents. The hair styling for the models will be provided by Heads Up Salon’s Sarah Keene. Dior of Dillard’s cosmetologists will put on the finishing touches.

This enchanted evening will begin with a social hour starting at 5:30. In honor of the fashion show, the bar will have a special ”Ciao Bella” cocktail available. Dinner will be served at 6:30. Dinner will be a tasty three-course meal followed by a parade of beautiful fashions. To add to the excitement of the evening, the DWA will be raffling off several fabulous prizes with a value of $50 or more. It’s not too late to purchase your ticket for $35, which covers the dinner and a contribution to the DWA to help support various local charities. To purchase tickets, call Donna Bernard at 464-0910 or send a check to her at 9907 Vineyard Lake Lane.

Thanks to Our Generous Deercreek Community 

The DWA Board wants to applaud our DCC community for the amazing support of our charity drives. The Books-A-Go GO Drive in August was outstanding, thanks to donations of 406 new and gently used books for children from low income families. These books are given to Title 1 school teachers at the Duval County Teacher Supply Depot. The books are then given to their students to take home so that they can have books of their own. Thank you, DCC, for your generous donations that will make an impact on the lives of those children.

The September Jacksonville Humane Society Drive came just in time to help the JHS with the care of rescue animals after Irma’s visit. The DWA (and the puppies and kitties) just can’t thank you enough from the bottom of our hearts for your generous donations to The Jacksonville Humane Society! We collected over 400 pounds of dog and cat food, many blankets and towels, treats and other miscellaneous supplies for the shelter. They were overwhelmed with joy when Jill Cole brought these items to them.

There were a lot of grins & giggles the week before Halloween as the children staying at Ronald McDonald House sifted through the mound of costumes donated by our DWA to help transform them into ghosts, goblins, superheroes & princesses for the day! Thanks to all who contributed to this effort! It is truly a blessing to be a part of this wonderful group of ladies who do so much for our community.
