Gallery’s ‘Fashion Plates’ Returns To Roots At Brookside

POTTSTOWN PA – Fashion Plates 6, the signature fund-raiser of the non-profit Gallery School of Pottstown, returns to its roots as an evening, couples-friendly event scheduled for March 31 (2012; Saturday) from 6-9 p.m. at Brookside Country Club in Pottstown, with “Carnival in Venice” as its theme.

Guests will enjoy what organizers escribe as “amazing food, an unlimited signature cocktail, and wonderful entertainment.” Community resident volunteers will model in a show that features fashions sponsored by Boscov’s Department Stores. A magician, a harpist and more will entertain guests during the cocktail hour, and as they browse the silent auction.

Food for the evening will begin with an antipasti bar during the cocktail hour. Dinner will be a deluxe salad bar, a beef station with chef-carved top round of beef, and a pasta station with smoked mozzarella and roasted red pepper ravioli with plum tomato and pesto cream sauce, and penne tossed with sautéed julienne peppers, zucchini, mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes in a Parmesan marinara sauce.

After dinner can enjoy a variety of desserts.

All proceeds benefit the mission of the non-profit Gallery School: to enrich the
lives of the residents in the greater Pottstown area through the visual arts.
