Charity organization’s event features fashion show

Eighteen graduating seniors from local area high schools were presented to family, friends and the San Diego community during the National Charity League (NCL) San Diego Chapter’s Senior Presents 2009 and Fashion Show on May 23. The event, called La Vie en Rose, was held at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine. San Diego philanthropist Victoria Eddy announced the presentations.

An annual rite of passage, Senior Presents marks the culmination of six years of active community service in more than 30 local nonprofit organizations. Several of the philanthropies supported by NCL were highlighted during the show.

After the presentations and dinner, the evening featured a fast-paced fashion show produced by Pat Perkowski of Pat Perkowski Productions, featuring the “modelettes” of the sophomore and junior classes. Ashen, Betsey Johnson, Christie’s, Mabel’s, Macy’s Fashion Valley, Modern Amusement, Pink Lagoon and Tobi Blatt provided the fashions.
