I just wanted to share this great cause with you all on behalf of two of our GoalWorks team members. Vanessa Swilks and Jacqui Clancy are both involved in a great event called ‘Frock-On Newcastle’. Frock On is the brainchild of the ultra dynamic Vanessa Swilks who is the organiser of the event and is also co-owner of Fashion Precinct, a great little clothing and homewares shop located in the Junction in Newcastle. Jacqui Clancy is the Official Photographer for the event and the owner of Jacqui Clancy Photography. See some of her fantastic work at http://jacquiclancy.com.au.
For those of you in Newcastle, Frock On Newcastle is Newcastle best and most fashionable fund raiser. Last year was it’s inaugural year, and they raised over $12,000.00 in charitable funds for the Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) Hunter School. Vanessa created Frock On as a way to raise money for the school when she observed the massive difference it made to the child of one of her friends who attends the school. In 2010, they are aiming for bigger and better. The event last year was a massive success and was one of the most professional fashion events that this city has seen.
Frock On is open to fashion designers who compete in a number of categories and culminates in the Gala event to be held on July the 3rd at Newcastle Town Hall. Frock On also includes the ‘Face of Frock On’, an award given to the model chosen to represent Frock On in a significant portion of the marketing material including a television advertisement!
