PISCATAWAY, NJ – On Friday, December 5 at 6:30 pm, the Daughters of Penelope, Tethys Chapter #229 will hold a Fashion Show to raise funds for Bring Change 2 Mind, an organization that strives to change the stigma associated with mental illness, as well as local area charities. The Fashion Show will take place in the Community Center of St. George Greek Orthodox Church, 1101 River Road, Piscataway. Admission is $15 at the door, and includes a gift bag, gift auctions, refreshments and a chance to win one of several door prizes.

The 2014 Fashion Show highlights the latest trends from Zastra Women’s Fashions & Accessories Boutique of Princeton, and Bachrach Menswear Collection of Menlo Mall, Edison. Inquiries can be made about the clothing at the end of the fashion show. Door prizes include large poinsettias and holiday gifts.

For more information about the 2014 Fashion Show, or to make a reservation call Polly Ploussiou, 732.297.6246. Tickets can also be purchased via Eventbrite:
“The Daughters of Penelope donates to many worthwhile charities including grants for Cancer Research, local Women’s Shelters, Scholarship funds and more,” said Tethys Chapter President Joann Szela. “Organizations like Bring Change 2 Mind strive to strengthen the community as well as bring awareness to specific causes – in the case of Bring Change 2 Mind, mental illness. We are happy to support such organizations.”

Daughters of Penelope, Tethys Chapter #229 was founded over 60 years ago at St. George Greek Orthodox Church, located at the time in Highland Park, NJ, by several area Greek women who wanted to make a difference in their community. Since then, the chapter has actively supported a number of national and local charities and scholarship funds in New Brunswick, Somerset, Piscataway, Highland Park and Edison.

Established in 1929, the Daughters of Penelope is the women’s auxiliary of the AHEPA Family (American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association) with Headquarters in Washington, D.C. This organization is a leader in philanthropic, educational and cultural activities with over 350 chapters in the United States, Canada, Greece, Cyprus, and Australia. Each chapter of the Daughters of Penelope makes a difference in its local community by devoting countless hours to volunteer work in hospitals, retirement homes, women’s centers and daycare centers; and by organizing educational seminars, helping the less fortunate, supporting their local church and making monetary contributions to neighborhood charities and scholarship funds.
