JRC rolled out the red carpet for the Adult Day Center Annual Fashion Show - "Passion for Fashion".

A long time volunteer Lesley Venturella chaired the event and organized the team of JRC Volunteers for a wonderful event!

The audience was ready and the JRC members who participated were dressed in their finest to strut the red carpet and show off their fabulous hair, nails and outfits to help of them feel like a Queen or King for the day!
