Fashionable entrances aid music

From Skaneateles 300, Marcellus dentist Dr. Taryn Jirousek showed off her figure in a sleeveless empire waist dress and carried a bag from the shop as she mingled with luncheon attendees.

"I love this dress," Jirousek said.

Her first modeling job came from a long-standing friendship she has with Skaneateles 300 owner, Geraldean Lantier.

Along with lunch and fashion, a silent auction was ongoing through event so those in attendance could make their bids. All of the items were donated by local merchants, said Patti Carey with the music guild.

According to Carey, who also acted as emcee to introduce the models, the funds in the past have helped to purchase instruments for the school that the Skaneateles Board of Education is not able to pay for. Funds also aid students who need help to pay for private lessons or summer programs.

Each year, the guild awards two $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors and also hosts the "Summertime with the Syracuse Symphony" concert.

Last year, the spring luncheon and the guild's Christmas party raised more than $15,000 for the projects.
