Roslyn High School students raised $29,000 at the annual Benefit Fashion Show held last month. Juniors and seniors put on a great show, which included the modeling of clothing, six groups of dancers, singing and piano performances, and skits. Students raised money by selling advertisements to stores in the community, as well as to family and friends.
Many local stores also donated clothing for the students to model, such as Lester’s, 25A, Mixology, Clothes Horse, Transitions, and Infinity. Karako Suits and Victor Talbots donated tuxedos and suits for the boys to model. Paragon Hair Salon offered to do the girls’ hair for the show. Also, Atillio’s, Pirandello’s, and Delicacies donated food for the students during rehearsals.
This year’s senior leaders were Hannah Friedman, Taylor Bergman, Julienne Halperin, and Nikki Ianniello. Faculty advisors were Tara Berkowitz and Diana Sabzevari.
The money that was raised will benefit the North Shore Autism Circle, the Dance/Shake/Donate Foundation, and two recent graduates of Roslyn High School in need of medical care. This is one more among many examples of the extraordinary range of charitable work done by students throughout the Roslyn schools on behalf of numerous worthy causes.
The students greatly appreciate the support and participation from the community. Additional donations are welcome: send a check payable to “Roslyn High School Activity Fund” to Roslyn High School Benefit Fashion Show, 475 Round Hill Road, Roslyn Heights, NY 11577.
