Fashions will be highlighted in three sections, including “Sporty,” “Smart,” and “Sassy.”

The fundraising event will showcase the romantic colors and styles for spring from locally-owned retailers including Bay Street Jewelers, Bay Street Outfitters, Beaufort Clothing Company, Carolina Wiggle Wear, Divine Shoes, Grace & Glory, Her Favorite Store, Higher Ground, Lulu Burgess, Modern Jewelers, Sweet Grass Apparel, and Diane Hultari of Custom Tailoring as well as FRIENDS of Caroline Hospice’s Red Door.

The event will include a gourmet luncheon by Catering by Debbi Covington who was featured as a “Master of Entertaining” in Southern Living magazine, entertainment by “Music to Go,” Ed and Kris Robertson and auctioneer, Deanna Bowdish.

Tickets are $55 or you can purchase a table for 10 people for $500. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling 843-525-6257 for reservations or additional information.

“We are so excited about our new venue, which is located in the community where you will find the Friends of Caroline Hospice office. As the numbers have continued to grow, we have had to move from our initial location at Dockside Restaurant, to our most recent location, the Beaufort Inn. Now as we prepare for our largest attendance ever, the 2012 Friends Fashion Show will be held at The Shed, where there will be a completely different look. This year we hope attendees will feel as though they are entering a New York loft as they walk in the door, and after enjoying their lunch, will be transported directly to the runway of that high fashion city,” explains Sharon Dwyer, who is co-chairing the event with Janet Thompson.

FRIENDS was the first and only hospice in Beaufort founded by Beaufortonians wishing to help a dying friend.
