Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club Fashion Show A Big Social And Financial Success


Sunrise Fashion Show 2013
It was worth all the effort said Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club President Joe Castelano. After months of planning, soliciting and procuring, the club held its 5th Annual Fashion Show at The Fiesta on Thursday, June 6th. The proceeds from this charity event will allow the club to donate monies to local Paramus organizations and to the Rotary sponsored Gift of Life. They have already chosen to accept a child from Burma/Myanmar for the Gift of Life program. The other allotments will be decided on at a later date.

With a slate of celebrity models parading down the runway at The Fiesta, the audience cheered each one. the adult models were: Paramus Mayor Richard LaBarbiera who paraded down with Paramus First Lady MaryAnn LaBarbiera; NJ Assemblywoman Connie Wagner; Dr. Kay Walter, President of Bergen Community College; Paramus Rescue Squad Chief Joe Hamlin; Bergen County Sheriff Mike Saudino; Richard Muir of Prestige Motors; Robert B. Jones, PH.D, President of Children's Aid And Family Services; Cynthia Hulse, Principal of Midland School; Joseph Chinnici, Vice President of TD Bank; Loula Karapperis, owner of CKO Paramus Kickboxing along with Nicholas Lamonaca. Children models were: Amanda and Samantha Castelano; Finnegan James and Michael McCarthy.

Most of the models sported clothes supplied by Macy's at Westfield Garden State Shopping Center. A few either wore their own clothes or their uniform. The LaBarbiera's, and Connie Wagner are Honorary Members of the Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club. There were over sixty Tricky Tray prizes with values reaching as high as $350.00 plus door prizes as well. The tickets were read off by Emcee Vicky Sola who also greeted and described each model as they entered and walked down the illuminated runway.

In a surprise move, President Castelano awarded the Rotarian of the Year plaques at the show. He did this because one of the recipients, Senior General Manager Deb Mattes had to leave early and prepare for her new assignment, the Executive Director of a large temple in the Chicago area. She had resigned from Westfield! The other recipient was General Manager Bassam Mhich of Bergen Town Center. Joe explained that it was a difficult task to select one member because both of these Sunrise Rotarians had contributed so much to the growth and activities of the club.

Club President Joe Castelano thanked his club members for putting forth extra effort to make this annual fundraiser a success. Another surprise was a power failure on the west side of Route 17 in Wood Ridge which affected The Fiesta. The guests left under the guidance of the emergency lighting, but had to use the stairs since the elevator was inoperative.
