Runway Show Benefited Welcome Center!

The hot and steamy morning of July 25th was met by a cast of characters donning their creative outfits to benefit The Willoughby Welcome Center.  The gathering was held at Fusco’s Auction House and was the 2nd event for the eclectic runway show highlighting Willoughby area businesses.

More than 20 business owners strutted their creations down the catwalk before a full house of enthusiastic event goers. The mood was fun and jovial as entrepreneurs showed their wares with a traditional, quirky and even off beat  manner.
