More than 200 women put their “best foot forward” Friday, April 1, for the Wilton Woman’s Club’s 50th Anniversary Fashion Show and FUNdraiser that benefited the Wilton section of the Norwalk River Valley Trail (NRVT).
Aptly named, Best Foot Forward included a luncheon, vast silent auction, raffle, and fashion show. By the end of it all, the club had raised more than $30,000 for the trail.
“We are honored that the woman’s club looked at NRVT as a community resource,” Pat Sesto said on Friday. Sesto, formerly director of Wilton Environmental Affairs who now works in Greenwich, has spearheaded the trail’s development since its inception. “Of all the options they could have chosen, this has enough broad appeal” for the club to embrace it.
