"I love seeing people that I know. It is a fun way to bring the whole town together but also, for one day it makes you feel like a princess,"said Lena Thakor, one of the young models in this year's fashion show.

Feeling like a princess was just part of the fun during Community Answers' 11th Annual Swing into Spring Fashion Show on Sunday afternoon. Proceeds from the event benefitted the online referral agency which is a program of the United Way.

Executive Director Chitra Shanbhogue said, "We serve as the connecter between the residents and any essential services that they are looking for. That can be anything from daycare, work life balance, after-school care or sports for their children."

Backstage, 90 models were eager to walk the runway in the latest spring fashions.

"My favorite part of the fashion show is walking and seeing the stage and everyone that you know. We wait for such a long time backstage so it's really exciting when you finally get on the stage,"said Maya Thakor.

Madigan Pizzella said, "There are a bunch of different clothes and designers and it feels more like a big production rather than a smaller show."

"My favorite part is being able to dress up and show all your friends and family how you walk on the runway. It's my first time walking in a fashion show so I'm really excited," said Lauren Pizzella.

Organizers say the event which also includes a silent auction is one of their biggest fundraisers of the year.

"Clients may not know that they have so many options in the community and they may be just managing thinkign that they are out there all alone. Community Answers role is to make sure that no resident feels alone and helpless and does not know how to get help," said Shanbhogue.
