Big "L" Club Prepares for Upcoming "Lancers on Parade" Fashion Show, Tricky Tray & Taste of Livingston


LIVINGSTON, NJ — More than 100 senior athletes from Livingston High School (LHS) will model clothing from local vendors as they are recognized at the upcoming “Lancers on Parade” Fashion Show, Tricky Tray and Taste of Livingston, the Big “L” Club’s largest fundraiser of the year, on May 9.

In addition to the fashion show, which is the highlight of the night and will feature 102 student models this year, 38 restaurants from Livingston, Caldwell, Millburn, Roseland, East Hanover, Florham Park and more will provide tastings of their signature dishes for the Taste of Livingston portion of the event. Dozens of local businesses also provided an extensive range of prizes for the Tricky Tray raffle.

Following the initial gathering in the LHS cafeteria at 6 p.m., where the raffle items and restaurant samplings will be displayed, the athletes will model the latest designer clothing and accessories from 580 South, Men’s Wearhouse, Complements Two, Infinity, Wish, Like Wear, Lord and Taylor, Vanilla Sky, Old Navy, The Gap and Macy’s in Livingston. Three new clothing vendors this year include Nordstrom Rack, Marshall’s and Hot Tots.

Paul Gaglioti, owner of Dieci Lifestyle Spa in Livingston and Giovanni Sarracino from Antonio’s Salon and Spa will once again donate their professional staffs to style the models’ hair and apply their makeup.

The event raises money to support the Livingston Athletic Program as well as to provide an annual gift to the athletic department, which will be revealed at the LHS pep rally toward the end of the school year.

The one gift provided by the Big “L” Club each year is intended to benefit the entire athletic community at LHS. In previous years, for instance, gifts have included the mascot costumes, a “Lancers” team tunnel, portable speakers, a golf cart, video cameras with a special software for coaches and more.

According to Big “L” Club President Joy Bushwell, the Big “L” is expecting between 300 and 400 people to attend the May 9 event.

In the week leading up to Lancers on Parade, the Big “L” Club encourages area residents to support the cause by purchasing one of the three-tier 50/50 raffle tickets that representatives have been selling throughout the town.  

“I truly believe that the fashion show is the beginning of the end for the senior class and they are looking forward to it,” said Bushwell.

The Big “L” Club currently has 33 members with a full-capacity board but is always looking for local parents to join in support of the athletic program. To learn more about the Big “L” Club, visit
