Fashions with Flair

The Annual Fashions with Flair Fashion Show & Auction fundraiser was first held by the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) in 2003 at the Belleair Country Club. In 2010 the show moved to the beautifully restored Fort Harrison owned by the Church of Scientology. Around 300-500 people attend each year from the greater Tampa Bay area. The event includes an auction that has something for everyone, celebrity items, jewelry, baked goods, fine art, dinners at prestigious restaurants and many valuable gift certificates.
