Fashion and Talent had arrived in style at The Gables bar and restaurant on Thursday the 29th Oct 09 @ 7.30 with the help and support of TESCO Dungannon. Around 150 local people attended to support the event- this included TESCO staff, models and members of the Niamh Louise Foundation.
Compere for the evening Peter Lavery welcomed everyone to the show and introduced Ken Magall- Tesco Store Manager to say a few word. Eimear Mc Kearney from the Niamh Louise Foundation was the invited to the stage to speak on behalf of the charity. Eimear informed the audience of the work of the charity and the importance of the evening in raising awareness of suicide.
Throughout the evening there was a variety of entertainment in between changes from The Countrys Got Talent Winners- Lisa Campbell and Kevin Scullion. The excellent raffle prizes included various gift vouchers to spend in Argos, Tesco, Meals for two at Cohannon Inn, Weekend break for two at Lough Earn and a selection of beauty treatments where just some of the fantastic prizes from the raffle.
For one night only Miss Gables was judged with the help of the crowd, four men (TESCO staff) dressed as ladies had to showcase their talent, a night to remember indeed. The show involved a number of clothing lines from Tesco including the spectacular Halloween range on offer. New lines from Aurora in Dungannon were also on show.
At the end of the fashion show Brian Kelly said a few words on a personal note and thanked the TESCO team for making the evening such a success.
Again thank you to TESCO- in particular to Sharron McHugh, Sharon Mallon and Sheila Kelly for all their hard work and effort over the past few months in making the evening a success.
A special word of thanks must also go to Peter Lavery for helping the Niamh Louise Foundation on the evening- Peter gave his time up voluntarily on a few occasions now for the charity and we are very grateful for him in doing so.
