Fashion Show fundraiser

It was a day of fun, fashion and good food for supporters of Tyler Holmes Memorial Hospital.

The Tyler Holmes Memorial Hospital Auxiliary held a special luncheon last weekend at the historic Tanglewood home in Carrollton – the former home of Dr. Millard Costilow. A portion of the proceeds from the luncheon fundraiser will go to the Dr. Millard Costilow Scholarship Fund, and organizers thought it a “special honor to raise money for the scholarship at Dr. Costilow’s former home.”

Following a lovely meal, guests were treated to a fashion show and took part in a silent auction.

Models showed off the latest styles from Special Treasures, Garden By The Pond, Hammond’s Pharmacy and Jamie Lynn’s.

Bailey said she contacted Spellman about her artwork because “a customer was bragging about how good it was.”

Local artist Hollie Spellman has always loved to paint and is self-taught, but four years ago, a friend asked if she would paint several pieces for nursery at her church, Carrollton Baptist. It was one of the first times she painted Bible verses on a piece of artwork.
