Last month, Katherine Eady hosted the Let’s Have Tea Mother’s Day and Runway Show at the Bahia Shriners Center in Orlando.
Eady, owner of Let’s Have Tea and a longtime resident of Orlando, styled the majority of models with clothing from Goodwill Industries of Central Florida. She said, “I’ve been finding fabulous clothes at Goodwill for more than a decade. And, it was fantastic to show off my finds while inspiring women to look their best no matter what their budget is!”
The first annual event not only showed the area’s women how to get a good deal, but also brought awareness to Goodwill’s mission of recycling and repurposing all resources, from clothing to electronics.
“This event was a tremendous opportunity for Katherine to showcase her creativity and to literally show Orlando shoppers that used and repurposed clothing is interesting, stylish, fashionable, and most importantly, sustainable,” said Judith Pariseau, vice president of Public Relations for Goodwill .
More than 200 local women attended the event, including Vanessa Echols, WFTV-Channel 9 news anchor and founder of Compassionate Hands & Hearts Breast Cancer Outreach. Also, Royce Flagler, daughter of former city commissioner, Mabel Butler, celebrated her birthday at the event with her mother, sisters and close friends.
