Each year the Day Nursery Auxiliary holds a luncheon and style show to raise money to support activities in the Day Nursery centers.  This year’s event, which was held October 3 at the beautiful Oak Hill Mansion in Carmel attracted 270 supporters.  The Day Nursery Auxiliary is 70 years old this year so the event took on a birthday theme.  Each table had a colorful birthday cake centerpiece decorated by some very talented Auxiliary members.  Fashions from Secret Ingredient, Lilly’s Boutique Gallery, The Oxford Shop, Escapades Boutique and Day Furs were modeled by Auxiliary members.  Leslie Olsen of WISH-TV8 was the honorary chairperson.  Jenny Rosebrock, Auxiliary president presented a check for $25,000 to Day Nursery Executive Director Carolyn Dederer.  Since 1938, the Auxiliary has supported Day Nursery by raising funds as well as providing assistance in the centers.  Current projects include helping with school picture days, vision screenings and reading to the children.

This year’s Day Nursery Auxiliary Style show received generous support from these corporate sponsors: Kirr Marbach & Co., Lincoln Financial Group, Baker & Daniels, Benefit Associates, Ernst & Young; ADP; Appnuity; Clarian Health Partners, Gregory & Appel and Indiana Business Equipment.  We thank them for their support of the event and the children of Day Nursery.
