On October 3, 2013, a fashion show combined with a silent auction was co-sponsored by Muse Inspired Fashions and Nestje Home Décor and Gifts. Held at the Casablanca Winery Inn, models walked a runway bordered on both sides by 200 chairs filled with fashionistas. The chairs, draped in white covers lent an air of glamour and sophistication to the show. The models, personally selected by Pat from among her clients, wore Muse’s Fall and Winter offerings.
Tables around the room spilled over with items for the Silent Auction. Donations came from local businesses, community agencies, individuals and of course, Muse and Nestje.
Proceeds from the Silent Auction and net proceeds from ticket sales were donated to three agencies:
Christmas Toy Drive 2013
- Community Care of West Niagara
- Grimsby Benevolent Fund
- West Niagara Second Stage Housing & Counselling
Spring Fashion Show 2014 - March 30th
The Van Es family held a Christmas Toy Drive and all family owned companies participated. Muse, Nestje, Outfront, Across Country Transport and the Relay Truck Stop held their first Annual Toy Drive in support of Community Care West Niagara. Thanks to the generosity of our customers and the general public , the fundraiser was a great success and will be continued in the years to come to ensure a special Christmas for children in need.
Spring Fashion Show 2014 April 15th
Pat was asked by Emily Thompson (Program Director for WNSS) if she would participate in a fundraiser for West Niagara Second Stage. The event took place at a local restaurant in Grimsby on Sunday March 30th. The event was a tremendous success with a sold out crowd in attendance. There was much praise for the fashions presented by Muse Inspired Fashions.

Fall Fashion Show 2014 November 2014
Another successful fashion show plus silent auction was held at the Casablanca Winery Inn on October 1st. All net proceeds were once again donated to not three, but four local organizations – Benevolent Fund of Grimsby, CCWN, West Niagara Second Stage, and McNally House.
Christmas Toy Drive & Food Drive 2014
We were asked to participate in a “Ladies Night” at the Watering Can Flower Shop in Vineland. Eight models strutted their stuff wearing the latest fashions from MUSE Inspired Fashions.
The second Annual Toy Drive was held during the Christmas season for CCWN. This year a second initiative was added---a FOOD DRIVE for Grimsby Benevolent Fund. The community worked with us to make both very successful. Thank you to the people who donated and to these organizations who work so hard for the people in need in our community.
