The Annual King-Tisdell Cottage Foundation Fashion Show, held this past Sunday, August 7th was a resounding success! The appreciative audience was treated to an array of fabulous fashions from the closets of our models—all of whom were community leaders –both youthful and wisdom wise men and women alike.

Leading the pack was former mayor of Savannah, Edna Branch Jackson! Among our male models were: Vernon Donovan,

Ray Truitt and the Honorable Pete Liakakis, who displayed a unique and fancy walk all of his own.

The models strutted down the runway like professionals from the Ebony Fashion Show days! The show was fast –paced, colorful&, full of action. This year’s show was dedicated to the memory of Doreatha Scott Tyson, member of the King-Tisdell board, who orchestrated previous Fashion Shows and served on several
