The event will be held Wednesday, Oct. 19 at Crystal Fountain at 60 McDowell Gate in Markham. Doors open at 10:30 a.m. for shopping and socializing. Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m. and will be followed by the fashion show featuring apparel from local shops, including Eleven Joseph, Peppertree Klassics, Eight on Main, Hartman 85 Main and Jillian’s.

All proceeds will go to the Markhaven Foundation, which is the fundraising arm of Markhaven Home for Seniors. Established in 1999, the Foundation’s purpose is to raise funds to further the objectives of Markhaven Home for Seniors, which has been caring for the elderly in Markham and surrounding communities since 1960.

This year, the foundation is raising funds for a nursery therapy room in its Alzheimer’s Unit, as well as resident transfer slings and resident art supplies.
