31st Annual Puttin’ Fashion Show
Contact: Laureen Crotteau, Event and Media Relations Specialist
The Joliet Area Community Hospice Guild is hosting their 31st Annual “Puttin’ on the Glitz” Then and Now Couture Show and Luncheon. The event is presented by Busey Bank, D’Arcy Buick GMC, The Horton Group and Kurtz Ambulance. Each year, this fashion show raises about $30,000 to benefit Joliet Area Community Hospice.
Joliet native and actress of theater and TV, Meagen Fay, will commentate this year’s fundraiser, which has a vintage twist. She has appeared in episodes of Bones, Criminal Minds, Madmen and the hit show, The Big Bang Theory. Fay also was in a number of films including La La Land as Mia’s mom.“Meagen’ s late mother and my dear good friend, Peggy Fay, was our commentator for 30 years. Having her daughter Meagen join us as well as three of her grandchildren model Peggy’s own clothing at our event will be a tribute to her.” said Jeanette D’Arcy. “Some of the vintage fashions are ageless and still in style today.” D’Arcy and Julia Malloy are
co-chairs of the fundraiser. The models will be wearing modern fashions from Dean’s of Naperville and Chico’s of Orland Park along with vintage styles that members of the guild have provided dating from the early 1900’s to the 1980’s.
“The ladies of the Guild have hosted the fashion show and luncheon for 31 years. Every year they do something just a little different. It will be fun to see the vintage clothing and we are excited to have Meagen Fay commentate. We are so appreciative of the tremendous support the Guild provides to JACH, our patients and families,” said Mary Sheehan, JACH CEO.
