Community minded models sought for Victoria fashion fundraiser
Organizers of the fourth annual Fashion with Passion are looking for two individuals to strut their stuff down the runway in support of the charity fundraiser.
Last year, Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin and Olympic rower Silken Laumann were invited to channel their inner models for the event, which raises money for Women In Need programs.
The 2011 fundraiser generated $10,000 and helped 20 local women by offsetting the cost of bus passes, food certificates, items for home-based businesses and post-secondary education expenses.
The 2012 Fashion with Passion fundraiser happens May 4 at 6 p.m. at the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort Hotel and Spa, 45 Songhees Rd.
It will feature a dinner, silent and live auctions and musical entertainment. During the fashion show, female models will show off clothing from WIN’s three second-hand stores in Victoria, while male models will display Outlooks for Men fashions.
To nominate a potential model who has contributed to women’s lives, email firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of today (April 25).
Event tickets are $80 plus tax and can be purchased by calling 250-595-8381, visiting www.womeninneed.ca or dropping by a WIN store.
