COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Emeritus at Heritage Hills put on a fashion show to raise awareness for the Georgia chapter of the Alzheimer's Association and Walk to End Alzheimer's.

The runway highlighted patients and staff models in summer casual wear, military uniforms and glitz and glam formal wear. The program also featured dance routines by members of Performance Dance Studio.  

All the proceeds from Friday's show go to the Alzheimer's Association in an effort to eliminate the disease.

We talked to the program director Kimberly Bellamy on what this means for our community.

"Basically we just wanted to get the residents involved in our fundraising efforts and make it about them," explained Bellamy. "I felt like it would give us more range and give us the opportunity to bring people in and see what we're doing for our residents here who suffer from Alzheimer's disease."

Bellamy says they are in charge of raising $2,500 annually through fundraisers for the Alzheimer's Association, and they plan on doing many more fashion shows in the future.

The fashion show was sponsored by Dillard's Cosmetics, Colson Photography, Premier Designs Jewelry, April Marie Showers, Henri's Formal Wear, Military Commando Supply, Performance Dance Centre, Botanical Gardens, Lasting Impressions, Jim Bob's, and Wine & Spirits Columbus.
