Paramus Sunrise Rotary Celebrates Their 6th Annual Fashion Show Fundraiser In Style

Fashion Show Paramus Sunrise Rotary celebrated their 6th  Annual Fashion Show Fundraiser on Thursday, June 19, 2014. at The Fiesta in Wood-Ridge. The attendees enjoyed it so much that they clamored for their participation in the next year's festivities. A sit down dinner plus  dynamite models plus an abundant and utile Tricky Tray selection was offered for the modest price of $50.00. Sunrise Rotarians tried to make their guests feel at home by either sitting at their tables or visiting them.

Two masterful emcees, New Jersey Assemblyman Tim Eustace and Bergen County Freeholder James J (Jim) Tedesco III alternated by giving out awards and emceeing the parade of models. Both were superb in their volunteer jobs. They even set up a rivalry with Paramus Mayor Rich LaBarbiera over the location of the Bergen Town Center, much to the enjoyment of Bassam Mhich, General Manager of the center and a Paramus Sunrise Rotarian. A percussion  performance was offered by members of the Biwanko Taiko.

Eustace presented Mayor LaBarbiera and his first lady, MaryAnn with a plaque from the club for their outstanding hosting of the club's Gift of Life child, Mary, from Burma/Myanmar. MaryAnn reciprocated by presenting a PowerPoint photo selection showing little 5 year old Mary in her various stages of arrival, her cardiac operation and her rapid recovery from the operation done at Montifiore Hospital. This was facilitated by DJ Pat Verile, Paramus Councilman and fellow Rotarian along with Richard LaBarbiera, the Mayor's son,  who assisted him.

Paramus Veteran Service Officer Sam Casiello was called upon to assist in the Pledge of Allegiance and Paramus Mayor Rich LaBarbiera, an Honorary Member of the Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club, assisted in the recital of the 4 Way Test. Past President of the club, Joe Castelano, welcomed everyone and did the preliminary introductions. Club President Sophie Stone followed with a warm welcome to everyone .

After dinner, the Fashion models walked down the runway introduced capably by Freeholder Tedesco. Jim assumed masterly control, not only giving description of the outfits, but slowing down some of the younger models who had a tendency to race down to the end and back. Jim took command of the situation and was able to make everyone feel at ease. The models were: Dr. Kaye Walter of Bergen Community College, Dr. Bob Jones of Children's Aid and Family Services, Sona Hambardzumyan from Bloomingdale's and youngsters Amanda and Samantha Castelano and Michael McCarthy, High School students Theodore Koutros, Marco Riccoboni, James Back, Laura Okechukwu and Cassy Stone. Tedesco handled all the names with aplomb. Models Sponsors were: Macy's, Bloomingdale's and Malread's Hair Salon.

Financial results of the function were not known as of the time of writing, but socially, it was a tremendous success. The monies raised will go to various charities within Paramus. The club thanks everyone who attended.
