Article excerpt


The Mandarin-based Angelwood program launches The Ultimate Jet-Set Getaway fashion show and luncheon at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Sawgrass Marriott in Ponte Vedra Beach. And some local notables will be modeling for charity.

Angelwood Inc. is a local nonprofit organization that has been helping children who need special care for almost 15 years at five group homes, including some in Mandarin. The fashion show, silent auction and luncheon will raise money to benefit Angelwood's children's programs, including a summer camp.

The silent auction kicks off the event at 11 a.m., followed by the fashion show and luncheon at noon, with celebrity models scheduled to include Sheriff John Rutherford, news anchor Dawn Lopez of WTEV TV-47 and Duval County Clerk of Court Jim Fuller. Tickets are $50 per person, and reservations are available by calling Alexis Woods at 288-7259, ext. 19.
