Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce's young professional group, ACT BG (Active Community Teamwork, Bowling Green ) held its inaugural spring fashion show late last month at Nazareth Hall. Everyone looked smashing, said Earlene Kilpatrick, executive director of the BG chamber.
A runway built just for the occasion sparkled with lights as models displayed fashions provided by Elegant Rags and V Couture, both of Perrysburg.
Male models from the community were Gordon Wenig, Shawn Stansbery, Derek Utz, Mark Remeis, Carter Genson, Stan Korducki, Dick Newlove, Rodney Rodgers, Ed Whipple, Claude Kilpatrick, and Peter Lalor.
Women from the community who modeled were Janice Bergeron, Lisa Genson, Kathy Korducki, Meredith Moon, Laurie Newlove, Michelle Remeis, Alicia Stansbery, Wendy Stram, Tara Twigg, Cathy Newlove Wenig, and Mrs. Kilpatrick.
The estimated $3,500 netted will benefit the Loeys-Dietz Syndrome Foundation (a connective tissue disorder), and ACT BG. That's thanks to committee members who included Miriam Batke, Pam Bettinger, Kelly Ebersbach, Michelle Evans, Tari Geer, Mrs. Kilpatrick, Ms. Korducki, Ms. Stansbery, Beth Utz, Andrea Wojciechowski, and Mimi Yoon.
