Thanks to all of you who came and enjoyed our Hats Off to Spring Fashion show at the Beautiful Seascape Beach Resort. We showcased shopping locally with fashions from many of our local stores: Cinnamon Bay, Aptos Shoes and Apparel, Kickback Boutique, Patrick James, O’Neil’s Surf Shop, Xandra Swimwear, and our wonderful clothing store for children, Hopscotch in Aptos. There is no reason to shop online when we have the best choices for you right here in our Santa Cruz County.

Our models were men, women and children from our community and the stunning flowers were from Pajarosa Floral grown locally in Watsonville. They were perfectly arranged by Tammy’s Flower Connection. Our makeup artists from Bella Donna enhanced the glamour of our models as they do daily in their salon in Aptos. Models were photographed by our own photographer Express Photographic. Everyone in the trunk show was also local. It was a lovely event.

The event was sponsored by Aegis Living of Aptos. Partial proceeds from this event benefited Leo’s Haven which will be our first all-inclusive playground in Santa Cruz County. As Oliver, our spokesperson says, “All kids need to play.” Curves of Aptos will also donate a portion of all new memberships from now through May to Leo’s Haven. The community continues to amaze with support for our children. Thank you.

Leo’s Haven will be a playground designed to provide all children access to the benefits of play while fostering respect, empathy and friendships. Leo’s Haven is a project of Shane’s Inspiration, a nonprofit creating social inclusion for children with disabilities through inclusive playground programs. We are excited to be a small part of bringing this dream to a reality.

Enjoy spring.


Karen Hibble is co-executive director of the Aptos Chamber of Commerce.
