THE gorgeous gowns came out recently in Eureka for a garden party, fashion parade and auction to raise funds for the Our House charity in Lismore.

Organised by Vicki Brooke of Gretel Farm, it was aimed to help Our House raise money to build a house for Lismore Base Hospital patients and their families.

Pam Le May of Bangalow provided her vintage clothing collection for the parade, the highlight being a silk Christian La Croix mother-of-the-bride dress and a 1930 embossed silk satin wedding dress.

Byron's Anna Middleton Boutique staged a parade of her clothing range and Peter Thompson auctioned a range of goods donated by local businesses.

About 80 guests attended, putting more than $8000 towards the project.

Anyone in need of hospital accommodation or wanting to make a donation to the project should contact Rebekka Battista of Our Kids on 6620 2705.
