Independent Group Home Living Program (IGHL) will welcome fashionistas to its 8th annual IGHL Fashion Fling & Luncheon at Westhampton Country Club on Sunday, October 23rd.

IGHL provides services for men, women and children who have intellectual disabilities, with 70 group homes and 25 day programs located throughout both Nassau and Suffolk Counties.

"This event is about bringing women together who support IGHL and its mission," explained Dori Geier, Senior Director of Human Resources at IGHL, who co-founded the IGHL Luncheon & Fashion Fling with Mary Beth Lichtneger, IGHL's Chief Financial Officer. "This event recognizes these women as being a vital part of IGHL's family and in this way we honor them." IGHL is extremely grateful for its dedicated supporters. "These women are mothers, sisters, cousins, grandmothers and aunts of some of the people we care for; others are valued supporters," adds Lichtneger. "Together we are strong in fighting for and standing up for those who aren't able to."

From 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., attendees can learn about the latest fashions as models parade past them during a Fashion Show, enjoy delicious bites, and Greg Williams Quartet will be performing throughout the afternoon!

IGHL is pleased to be working with Janine Nebons, G.M. Tanger Outlets Riverhead & Worth New York as sponsors for the fourth straight year. "Worth New York is an up-scale women's clothing company inspired by a passion for excellence, luxury and sophistication. They provide products with visible, intrinsic value through an enduring commitment to style, quality and service," remarked Peggy Palmer, Store Manager for Worth New York. "Worth partners with organizations dedicated to improving the lives of women and children and are proud to be providing the fashions for this year's IGHL Fashion Fling & Luncheon." Palmer will also MC the fashion program!

"Working in concert with our retail partner Worth and other Tanger retailers, we are happy to support IGHL's mission to provide quality programs, services and support for the intellectually-disabled," said Nebons. "IGHL's work on Long Island is essential to serving those individuals that need assistance on many levels. We know the annual Fashion Show is a perfect fit for Tanger Outlets and IGHL and look forward to showcasing great Fall fashion!"

Willis will be the event sponsor for the 8th year in a row. 1800FLOWERS has created the flowers on each table and additional sponsors include Mutual of America, Jackson Lewis, Cafar Greenleaf Investments and AETNA.

Tickets are $175 per person or $1,575 per table of ten.
