WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Police officer and detectives, and nurses in White Plains took to the catwalk recently to raise money for student scholarships.

The Woman’s Club of White Plains Foundation Scholarship Luncheon & Fashion Show was held April 16 at the historic CV Rich Mansion, the club's base siince 1930.

Past scholarship winners as well as women in service were honored at the luncheon.

"As the Woman’s Club celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2016, we wanted to look back in our history and our long relationship with White Plains Hospital, where nursing students received our first scholarships over sixty years ago," said Ybelize Pilarte, event chairwoman.

"We also wanted to give a nod to the women in our schools and community who educate our children, keep us all safe and are on the front line of providing health care."

Past scholarship winner, Katherine Bonnet, a recent graduate of SUNY Albany currently pursuing a law degree at Pace University, spoke at the event.

The fashions modeled were from  Lord & Taylor and LOLA New York, and the models represented “Women in Service," and included women from White Plains Public Schools, along with the officers and nurses.

Net proceeds from the day which will fund the scholarships are expected to approach $15,000, said a release.

Scholarships will be awarded to the winning students at Awards Night at White Pains High School in June.
