Seniors Strut Down the Runway for 26th Annual Fashion Show
The evening of November 10th was one to remember as Eastchester High School's PTA hosted its 26th Annual Senior Fashion Show to honor this year's graduating class.
The venue for the event was the Greentree Country Club in New Rochelle where families, faculty, and other members of the community gathered at round tables waiting for their senior stars to hit the stage.
Centerpieces made by Eastchester High School's Art Honor Society were placed at each table with words that embodied each senior class member; Resilient, Creative, Helpful, to name a few.
Special baskets were raffled off and crafted using the generous donations of students and families in the Eastchester Union Free School District. Local businesses and organizations donated money, gift certificates, event tickets and other prizes.
There were 17 retailers who loaned, outfitted, and styled looks for the 164 student models. These included: Brooks Brothers, David's Bridal, Harry A. Rothman's, Jos A Bank, Lotus Threads, Macy's, Mixology Clothing, Nora's Bridal, Pedigree Ski Shop, Pookie & Sebastian, Ridge Square Tuxedos, San Marko Formals & Fine Menswear, The Gap, Vanilla Sky, Whim, and Emprunte Boutique.
On behalf of the entire Eastchester High School PTA Executive Board, Chairwomen Candace Medici and Happy French-Zingaro, read a letter aloud to the crowd that encapsulated their feelings about the fundraising event which took over seven months to plan. They even gave a special shout out to the Class of 2021 who missed out on the experience last year but still so deserving of recognition for all their hard work.

"What a spectacular night for our seniors! I have to say we enjoyed every moment planning this show together and seeing the smiles on the kids faces was the icing on the cake. It made the countless hours and effort all worth it!" Medici said. "I always knew we lived in a great community but tonight was proof of how united we are," she added.
Thank you to everyone who made this year's fashion show such a success!
