With a crowd exceeding 200 people, the Wittenberg Guild celebrated the golden anniversary of its annual Style Show, Nov. 5.
Themed “Still Fabulous at 50,” the show featured local leaders modeling contemporary fall clothing for men, women and children. In addition, Lin Erickson, director and CEO of the Westcott House Foundation, modeled a 1960s-era dress previously owned by the late Style Show founder Martha Demarest Rodgers ’31. A number of other vintage fashions were also on display. The event included a raffle for prizes donated by local businesses and a separate raffle on a framed print titled Myers Hollow-Wittenberg, Summer 2002, painted by local artist Mike Copeland.
The largest fund-raising event sponsored by the Wittenberg Guild, the show raised more than $20,000, which will support local student scholarships. Since its founding in 1940, the guild has raised more than $800,000 for scholarships and various campus projects, including the Ann Miller Art Gallery.
