A Mother’s Day fashion show sponsored by Ally & Co. will take place May 12 in Quincy’s Washington Park. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Sammy Fund.
Ally & Co. is at 515 Maine. Reservations can be made by calling (217) 223-2600. Invitations have been sent, but the event is open to the public.
Allison Readdy, owner of Ally & Co., says the show will feature mother-daughter spring and summer fashions.
Tickets are $35 for the event, which starts at 11 a.m. and features lunch from the Park Bench or Brix. The noon show will feature a runway under a tent.
“This is a true fashion show,” Readdy said. “We actually have a runway, and there is nothing else like it in Quincy.”
Ally & Co. put on a fall fashion show last year at the Ambience in Quincy and raised $10,000 for breast cancer research. More than 300 people attended the sold-out event.
Ally & Co. has been open for nearly two years, and Readdy says the fashion shows benefit both charities and businesses. She chose the Sammy Fund, named after the late Samantha Otte, after hearing how it supports local children’s programs.
“We don’t make any money on the fashion show, but women will see the clothes and will want to come in and buy them,” she said. It benefits the charity, and in the end, we all win.”
The event is also sponsored by Kristopher’s and Tranquility Med Spa.
