Fantastic Fashion Success


We would like to thank everyone involved in the fantastic success which was our Fashion Event in the West County Hotel on November 21st. The Fundraising Committee put a huge amount of work in, and it all paid off. The event was sold out, our raffle tickets were selling faster than hot cakes, and the audience cheered & encouraged our amazing models every step of the way. To top it off, we got to see the beautiful and stylish fashions available locally. Who needs Paris or Milan? All you need is Ennis & Shannon!  We’ve got lots of photos on our fundraising page.
