I don’t have children. I always thought I would and it just never happened. Maybe it had something to do with not getting married until age 50! Over the past 30, years I’ve watched and listened as proud parents (and now many of my friends are grandparents) show and tell me about their children’s achievements with pride and happiness. Well, today it’s my turn to beam with pride about the talents of my TallGrass team, as close to my own kids as I’ll ever get, who worked together to create an awe inspiring Transitions12 Hair and Fashion Trends show with multitudes of moving parts. They pulled together 5 clothing stores including our own TallGrass Boutique, 10 children models, 12 fashion models, 12 hair, makeup and nail models, 6 dog and 2 cat models, and an onstage haircut. And, that was just for the stage show.
They added a silent auction this year which was enormously successful. Then, they sold out the show with standing room only. The little Evergreen Country Day School cafeteria was transformed with 2 runways, scented candles and an incredible new set design. There even was a costumed bird creature lurking down the runway and teasing the crowd! No one wanted the party to end and everyone stayed afterwards to see the wild hairstyles, make-up and nails on our models and enjoy coffee and dessert.
The total proceeds of the evening are still being calculated but we are way beyond previous years’ income and the folks from Mt. Evan’s Hospice’s Camp Comfort and Mountain Area Land Trust expressed their happiness at the chance to be beneficiaries of the show.
So, forgive my bragging, but dang it – I’M SO PROUD OF MY FAMILY AT TALLGRASS!
