Annual Fashion Show Will Raise Needed Funds for Camino Health Center – Tickets Still Available


Tickets are available for Camino Health Center Auxiliary's 27th annual Fashion Show and Luncheon for $200 each. The event will be held at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel on Tues., November 22nd to raise funds for Camino Health Center, a fully licensed, community-based clinic in San Juan Capistrano. The fashion show is planned and organized each year by the 100-member Camino Health Center Auxiliary who over the past 27 years has raised more than $4.9 million for the Center.

"The funds from the annual fashion show are vital to helping Camino Heath Center deliver quality primary health care to those without coverage or to those who are under-insured," said Charlene Jessup, chair of this year's fashion show. "With more than 120,000 annual patient care visits, Camino Health Center is a valuable asset to a community in need and makes a difference in the lives of countless families each year."
