A fashion show with African Matahari flair was held to raise funds for the St Lukes Home of Healing on March 11.
Sexy elegance – a design from Ballito resident Julia Cronje.
The event held at Ebandla Hotel showcased fashions by Stanger designer Sipho Tembe of Ostra designs and Ballito designer Julia Cronje.
Guest speaker at the event was the fashion nanny Sabrina Maingard who told the audience that a woman is only as beautiful as she believes and that her wardrobe is her love letter to herself.
Those who attended were treated to a wide range of entertainment including hip-hop dancing, singing and a violinist on roller skates, as well as a three-course meal.
St Luke’s Home of Healing, situated in Kearsney, is a home for the physically and mentally challenged.
It is a home away from home, a place where people with varied disabilities can be nurtured, loved and kept busy. St Luke’s was established in 1945 and falls under the auspices of the Department of Mental Health. The home receives a small state subsidy which does not cover the enormous costs of running and maintaining such a facility.
The home is therefore largely dependent on donations from local business and the private sector in order to keep its head above water.
