NDH Mothers’ Club to host Fashion Show fundraiser Nov. 10 to support moms and babies



Rhinebeck, N.Y. – Healthcare providers will model attire on a catwalk for a good cause at Northern Dutchess Hospital Mothers’ Club Fashion Show at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, at the Beekman Arms, 6387 Mill St., Rhinebeck.


In its 13th year, the popular event will have a new twist: Hospital clinicians and medical staff physicians will model local retailers’ merchandise.


This fun-packed ladies night starts with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. During a buffet dinner, the Beekman Arms banquet room transforms into a runway, while an emcee keeps the crowd entertained.


Fashion models show off clothing and accessories from Living Eden, Darryl’s, Waddle n Swaddle, Rhinebeck Department Store, Winter Sun & Summer Moon, Williams Lumber, Willow Wood and others. Attendees can participate in a raffle to win themed gift baskets donated by Mothers’ Club members.


“This is always a fun evening of cocktails and couture, showcasing fashions from our beautiful shops in the northern Dutchess area,” Mothers’ Club Treasurer Maureen Gates said.


The annual fundraiser will help the club purchase swaddle blankets and insulated breast milk bags for the hospital’s Neugarten Family Birth Center, which celebrated its 31th anniversary in September. Since 1954, the club’s volunteers have contributed more than $500,000 to the hospital.
