(WINDSOR, ON) – High fashion definitely has its benefits. The Windsor Yacht Club held its annual spring fashion show May 1 and $1,000 from the event, which attracted 132 people and featured five vendors, are being donated to Windsor’s Ronald McDonald House.
WYC Commodore Ted Saxby and Mary Lou Dorion, the lead on this year’s fashion show committee, will make the cheque presentation at Ronald McDonald House tomorrow at 2pm.
“Members of the Club wanted to do something for the community,” said Saxby. “Whatever way we can help a sick or injured child on their journey to wellness is important. It’s also equally as important to help keep families together during a difficult time. Our members are happy to assist.”
Ronald McDonald House opened in Windsor on May 6, 2016. It is Canada’s first Ronald McDonald House within a hospital, located inside the Met Campus of Windsor Regional Hospital. It offers a home-away-from-home for families while children receive care at WRH.
Dorion said the committee jumped at the chance to do something for the local charity.
“It’s a good cause and it gives people the chance to step up,” she said. “Everyone wanted to help. We’re more than just a private club.”
