"Cruising into Summer" was the theme of the Women's Council of Verdugo Hills Hospital Foundation Luncheon and Fashion Show on Thursday. The nautical theme was represented by the decor — ships, portholes, sand and surf — painted on the walls of the hospital's council room.
"We changed the council room to a cruise ship," event Chairwoman Sue Wilder said.
The imaginative decor was created by Judy Hurst, hospital director of volunteer services. Even the fashion show focused on casual, cruise-wear ensembles and gowns fit for the captain's table.
Show commentator was Women's Council member and glamorous great-grandmother Lynne Raggio. Fashion show models, all members of the Women's Council, sashayed around the tables, seating some 100 members and guests. Glam grandma Chris Mason, one of the first to strut her stuff, welcomed her first grandson earlier this year.
Opportunity drawing prizes, including travel accessories, were organized by Randy Alejo-Medina and Chris Watson-Rothrock.
