Senior Showcase

The Senior Showcase is a fundraising event for Boosters where we honor participating Graduating Seniors at the Abbington Distinct Banquets.  Guests attend a luncheon, fashion show, & silent auction.  Participating Seniors perform in the fashion show displaying current fashion trends from local generous merchants.  It’s a wonderful event for all involved especially friends & family of graduating Seniors.  A special day to honor and celebrate the Seniors’ accomplishments.

Many volunteers are needed for this event.  In past years parent volunteers have been chairing multiple committee positions.  More hands make it much easier.  We are asking for an individual to chair each position listed below. The chairperson is responsible to recruit individual committee members to assist them.  This is a great opportunity to involve your friends and family.

  • Senior Showcase Chair- Responsible for overseeing, leading & communicating to Committee Chairs
  • Fashion Show Chair – Contacts retailers, coordinating fashions, fittings, pick up & delivery
  • Models Chair – Responsible for communication with models, determines runs & show timing
