13th Annual Wilton Woman’s Club Fashion Show & Luncheon to Benefit Three Local Beneficiaries

On Friday, April 3, the Wilton Woman’s Club will hold its 13th Annual Fashion Show and Luncheon at Rolling Hills Country Club from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m.. Our theme this year is “Live, Love, Give!” The community is invited, and tickets may be purchased at online. This year’s fundraiser is supporting not just the usual one local non-profit organization, but three!

  • Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County
  • Stay at Home in Wilton
  • The Wilton Community Assistance Fund

The WWC Philanthropy co-chairs Liz Salguero and Kathy Poirier met with numerous local organizations that provide essential services to the Wilton community and depend on private funds. The three chosen organizations play a vital role–together they help all who are in need:  families, seniors, and those facing critical health challenges.

The WWC is proud to announce Nordstrom as its new partner for its fashion show! Guests will enjoy seeing designers from the new store just down the road in SoNo, and checking out spring styles modeled by members of the club. This event will include a prize drawing for two tickets to see this fall’s hottest new Broadway show–The Music Man starring Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster–as well as the always fun Silent Auction.

This signature Wilton event ushers in spring, and brings people together year-after-year for a worthy cause. Organizers urge the community to register soon so as not to miss out on the fun. Now is the time to invite friends, sign up and reserve a table.

Sponsors include Price Financial Group, The Toll Family Fund, and GOOD Morning Wilton.

In addition, the Club is using this year’s fundraiser to launch its new logo, designed by Maida Design. Please visit the website at Woman’s Club website to see the new mark, which represents an environment where women come together, imparting strength, structure and purpose, acknowledging the attributes of this long standing philanthropic organization. The W signifies that all are welcome, and flows out to the community, representing reaching out, providing support, and serving others, while the curve creates an encompassing flow and welcoming space that fosters friendships. The fresh color palette of bright green and deep blue present the current and progressive image in keeping with the essence of the Wilton Woman’s Club.

The Wilton Woman’s Club was founded in 1966 by a group of women led by Betty Sternad, who had a vision for serving people and groups in Wilton and the surrounding communities by giving back through philanthropy, education, and strengthening the bonds between women. As the club changes and grows each year, please visit the Wilton Woman’s Club website to join in continuing her legacy of making Wilton a beautiful and welcoming place to live.

Meet the luncheon beneficiaries:

Visiting Nurse  & Hospice of Fairfield County

When one person is ill, the whole family is in crisis. This non-profit has served the community for more than 100 years. They provide professional nursing and support services, senior care management, physical rehabilitation, health education, community wellness programs, and compassionate hospice care for adults and children in the heart of Fairfield County.

Stay at Home in Wilton

Stay at Home in Wilton offers supportive services and resources, along with social and educational programs that unite its members as a community and enhance their efforts to remain independent, active, and connected.

The Wilton Community Assistance Fund

There is a growing need within our community to help families and individuals who, for one reason or another, and through no fault of their own, find themselves in financial hardship. The Wilton Community Assistance Fund, an arm of Wilton Social Services, addresses this particular need that is often a “window” of help. It provides emergency oil deliveries and helps with utility bills, rental assistance, and other expenses.
