Mother-Daughter Show Tickled Pink for Make-A-Wish
The annual Mother/Daughter Fashion Show, sponsored by the Fairmont Hotel on M Street and Lizanne Jeveret of Pink Palm Bethesda Row, has become a treasured highlight of Mother’s Day weekend. The beneficiary is Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic, which for 35 years has fulfilled the wishes of children faced with life threatening illnesses. Julia and Sue Schiffman spoke of the Disney Company’s help for a little girl who – by becoming a princess -- overcame a difficult time. The fashions were a Lilly Pulitzer fantasy, as fledgling models pranced proudly with their mothers down the hotel’s ballroom runway during a midday tea. NBC4 News chief meteorologist Doug Kammerer emceed with the help of his son Kenton , while wife Holly and daughter Cally modeled. There was a tempting silent auction and age-appropriate Lilly Pulitzer goodie bags.
