St. Gilbert Fundraiser

Vintage Vogue luncheon raises $20,000

More than 250 guests gathered on May 2 for Vintage Vogue, a fundraiser for the St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Gilbert Church in Grayslake. The festive luncheon featured 35 volunteers modeling a selection of 80 fashions from the early 1900's from the private collection of Grayslake resident Gloria Venzon.

Highlights included the original LBD--little black dress--a black Chanel dress from the 1920's, and six vintage wedding dresses representing iconic styles from the last century. The fundraiser also featured a silent auction with donated items from Lake County residents and local businesses. The event raised over $20,000 that will benefit those in need in the Grayslake area.
