Vinnies models a hit in Proserpine

DESPITE the upheaval of Cyclone Debbie a large crowd turned out to admire what Proserpine Vinnies had to offer on Saturday.

Models of all ages hit the catwalk at the Tom Gard hall at St Catherine's Catholic College in the organisations biggest fund raiser of the year.

MC for the event and Prosperine Vinnies volunteer, Jane Muller, said she was pleased with the turnout.

"In excess of 250 people have come, it was a wonderful turnout," she said.

"It has been very well supported this year, and the clothes have been very well presented."

 

St Vincent de Paul Society multi centre coordinator Helen Paget was at the fashion show and took the opportunity to remind people of the current denim jeans promotion.

"What we are doing is half priced denim last week and this week Queensland wide," she said.

Ms Paget said all Vinnies could choose to make a denim display in the shops.

She said Di Cruise had made a fantastic display in Cannonvale.

"She has got Migaloo, the whale, and it looks really fantastic. We have a competition going between the shops state wide."
