Catwalk for a Cause

Linda Holliday and Elisha Daniels model clothing from Ports and Company in Cohasset.

Models graced the runway at the Jett Foundation’s “Inspirational Fashion” show at the Red Lion Inn in Cohasset on May 8. Hosted by honorary emcee Susan Wornick of WCVB’s NewsCenter 5, the show featured some of the latest spring and summer trends from Ports & Company of Cohasset.

The event began with an inspiring video about the strides the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy community has made in recent weeks, as well as a heartfelt speech by Jett Foundation founder, Christine McSherry, who started the organization in honor of her son Jett (who was diagnosed with DMD at age 5). The organization aims to raise awareness of the disease as well as funds to find a cure, and to assist other families impacted by DMD.

Tri for Jett team members, who will be participating in the Duxbury-Marshfield Triathlon in July, opened the show wearing their gear and strutting in their high heels. The group of lovely ladies was then followed by more than a dozen models showing off a host of fashions—all styled by Ports & Company owner and fashionista Lisa Lynch. All proceeds generated from this event went towards the Jett Foundation’s funding for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research.
