Day Nursery Auxiliary Fashion Show
Sorry if you were trying to get in touch with me today and couldn’t find me. I was out taking pictures and catching up with many of our supporters at the annual Day Nursery Auxiliary Style Show and Luncheon at Oak Hill Mansion in Carmel. This event is the major fundraiser for the Auxiliary, whose mission, since 1938 has been to support the Day Nursery Association through service and fundraising. This year’s event was co-chaired by Jenny Rosebrock and Marianne Stout. The fashions were provided by Lilly’s Boutique of Zionsville, Day Furs and Mary & Martha’s Exceedingly Chic Boutique of Carmel. Day Nursery Auxiliary members who modeled were joined by a special guest Indianapolis First Lady Winnie Ballard, who also served as honorary chair. Leslie Olsen of WISH TV 8 returned this year as the M.C. I had a special guest at my table, Danielle Smith, who attended the Day Nursery Ruth A. Lilly Center on Central Avenue. She shared her memories of Day Nursery and talked about how her early discoveries of color and art at Day Nursery lead her on a career that lead to her current position teaching fashion design at the Art Institute of Indianapolis. Here are a few pictures from today. I will be working on posting additional pictures on the Day Nursery Auxiliary blog too.
