Tampa Bay Informer - Pinellas Community

The Clearwater Community VolunteersThe Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) is excited to announce: the 7th annual “Fashions with Flair” silent auction and fashion show fundraiser on Saturday, August 29, 2009 at the Belleair Country Club from 11 am to 2:30 pm.

CCV is the volunteer arm of the Church of Scientology in Clearwater,  and is a non-profit charitable organization made up entirely of volunteers.  The CCV produces the huge Easter Egg Hunt in Coachman Park in Clearwater every spring and “Winter Wonderland” – its annual holiday charity drive in downtown Clearwater featuring 5 village buildings, 90 live pine trees, a fully functioning stage with entertainment, tens of thousands of tiny white lights, pony & train rides, a playground, a giant slide and bouncy house, and of course Santa and Mrs. Claus.

The charity fundraiser, held at the Belleair Country Club, packed the house with nearly 350 attendees from the greater Clearwater region.

Since 1994, Clearwater Community Volunteers have raised money, food and toys for family and children’s charities such as the Boys & Girls Club, Everybody’s Tabernacle’s Homeless Emergency Project, C.L. Kennedy Community Center in Tampa, the Red Cross, Victims of Katrina and Winter Wonderland.

CCV holds various fundraising activities throughout the year. However, Fashions with Flair” is the largest attended and, in my opinion, “the most elegant”.  Each year the event includes a silent auction, great food, entertainment and the fashion show of beautiful community leaders participating as models.
