BRAVO! 2016, what an explosion of excitement and color!

BRAVO! Champagne Brunch and Fashion Show “Fashion in Motion” was held on September 9 at Ponitz Center. In recent years, Opera Guild of Dayton has held a Community Model voting campaign in conjunction with this event. We appreciate the volunteer Models and all the voters who made this element of BRAVO! a huge success. We are proud to announce the results.



The Winner was the dynamic Barbara Haller, owner of Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Miamisburg, with Debbie Watts Robinson, CEO of Miami Valley Housing Opportunities, as First Runner-up. Tim Kambitsch, Executive Director of the Dayton Metro Library, was Second Runner-up and Susan Bridgman, attorney, was Third Runner-up. Great job!
