The ‘Twist’ included a complimentary glass of champagne on arrival, selection of traditional tea sandwiches, cakes and pastries, with a fashion show featuring the latest summer collections by Cecile’s, Boutique CC and English Sports Shop.

Local entertainment was provided by Chewstick, Sloane Wilson and Kassandra Gabrielle, with Vernon Douglas playing the piano, while Ruth Thomas served as MC.

Kardias members and friends volunteered their time to model for the event; Trudy Snaith, Nelda Cann, Shoshana Williams, Denika Reid, Cecilly Smith, Roydell Matthews, Ampha Hubbard, Sara Schroter, and Debbie Martin.

The Kardias Club is a well established women’s group which has been supporting the community of Bermuda since its inception in 1964. Over the years, through a series of fundraisers and the kind generosity of friends and sponsors alike, the Kardias Club has raised money to assist a number of local charities to achieve their goals.

Amongst their contributions to the island of Bermuda is the Intensive Care Unit at King Edward VII, the Packwood Home, Child’s Wish, Bermuda Autism Support and Education Society, The Family Centre, Fight for Life Foundation, Sunshine League Children’s Home, The Bermuda Sloop Foundation [The Spirit of Bermuda], and most recently P.R.I.D.E. Bermuda [their 2011 recipient] to name a few.

The Kardias Club, this year has a specific agenda to focus on charities with a service mandate to support families who have mentally and physically handicapped children in Bermuda. The Kardias Club has witnessed the support and dedication that the Committee of 25 for Handicapped Children offers to Bermuda’s families, by providing financial assistance when specialized diagnosis or treatment is needed overseas.
