LADY LAKE — Ray Wright, left, playing Charlie Chaplin, and David Ladd, as a gangster, pose in front of Ladd's Chrysler that was part of a Roaring '20s fashion, talent and car show held recently at Harbor Hills Country Club by the Leesburg Newcomers Club.

The event raised $1,000 for the Lake-Sumter Children's Advocacy Center in Leesburg, said Kathy O'Brien, treasurer of the newcomers group.

"That's what it was about — that and having fun," O'Brien said.

The advocacy center provides free services to child-abuse victims and their families, facilitates prosecution efforts against perpetrators and gives emotional and physical support to victims' families. In 2009, the newcomers club received the Advocacy in Action Award from the Florida Network of Children's Advocacy Centers.
