 Mona Vale Hospital Auxiliary Fashion Parade 2012
By Michael Mannington

Mona Vale Hospital Auxiliary attracted 100 fashion buyers to their fashion parade held at the Newport Bowling Club on Thursday 23rd August, 2012. The fashions on display were supplied by Donna-lou of Toukley. Donna-lou said that bright colours are in for this summer and some of the tops on show were indeed colourful. Some thirty different outfits were paraded before the audience with the show's MC Deborah Brown showing additional optional colours for each outfit. At the conclusion of the show all items were available for sale in sizes 8-26. Money raised goes towards raising funds for bedside cabinets, overbed tables and stackable visitors chairs for the WHOLE Hospital.
