April 30, 2015 / Madonna Heights News
Three hundred local supporters celebrated the Madonna Heights Ladies Auxiliary’s 34th Annual Dinner and Fashion Show at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury on April 29th to benefit SCO Family of Services’ Madonna Heights programs. Madonna Heights serves adolescent girls recovering from trauma and women in recovery at its Dix Hills campus, and also provides an on-campus mental health clinic and shelters for women and their children. “The commitment of the Ladies Auxiliary to the young women in our Madonna Heights programs is inspirational,” said Douglas O’Dell, Interim Executive Director of SCO Family of Services. “They exemplify what ‘giving back’ is all about.”
The event chairwoman was Barbara Harris, and the evening’s theme was “Masquerade.” The event included a reception and dinner, raffles, and fashions presented by Chico’s, Lonny’s and Little Shop for Babies.
