To raise funds to assist women and children in the Jaltemba Bay area.

Our Fashion Show Extravaganza, the premier social event of the season in Jaltemba Bay, is our sole source of funding.

In the past, the balance of our profits has supported community projects such as: The Christmas Basket Program, Cancer de Mama, GEMA, La Penita Senior Center, Local Kindergartens and Junior High Kitchen and Breakfasts.
