Model behavior: Atrium hosts fashion show
Several times a month The Atrium, a retirement facility at 3260 N. 12th St., treats the community to special events. It’s a way of staying connected and giving back to the community.
Wednesday afternoon, residents and guests were treated to an elegant lunch, followed by a fall fashion show featuring clothes and accessories from Zephyr, a downtown boutique.
Events like these “make our residents feel a part of the community, and they really love it because there is a lot of variety,” said Kelley Gilroy, a member of The Atrium’s management staff.
Joann Borgman, Robin Bradbury and mother and daughter duo Letha and Molly Nye modeled the latest fashions, including Foxcroft blouses, Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, and belts by Accessories by Ann, a Colorado fashion company.
All of the models were volunteers from Nightingale’s Care, a home companion service.
“We just wanted to introduce our new fall line, show that we have clothes for all sizes and occasions, and just do something nice,” said Sue Palmer, Zephyr sales associate and fashion show announcer.
“Our residents are really just enthralled by events like these,” Gilroy said.
The next event at The Atrium will be a Fall Festival Fundraiser for Hospice and Palliative Care of Western Colorado. It will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 3.
Admission is free and open to the public. There will be booths, food, entertainment, door prizes and a silent auction.
“We really need the public to come help us raise money for this,” Gilroy said.
