Penticton and South Okanagan
Fashion show to benefit victims
Oct 7, 2013 / 3:42 pm
A fashion show and shopping party, which will benefit the South Okanagan Victim Assistance Society (SOVAS), is slated to take place Wednesday, Oct. 9 at the Barking Parrot in Penticton.
The show, sponsored by Le Cheap, C'est Chic Clothing Company, will feature local models wearing fall fashions from the clothing company and Stella & Dot fall and holiday collections.
Partial sale proceeds from the event will go to SOVAS.
"Last year, SOVAS was faced with the possibility of having to dramatically cut hours to the men's counselling program and local donations via fund-raisers were key to enabling that program to continue as before," said Amberlee Erdmann, SOVAS resource development coordinator. "Similarly funds raised from the LCCC shopping party will go directly towards SOVAS' women's self-care group."
The majority of SOVAS' funding comes from government and community grants, however the remaining amount required to keep its doors open is from fund-raising.
Currently, it supports 1,200 people a year through counselling, court support, and information to men, women and children who have experienced abuse.
Doors open at 6 p.m., and the New York-inspired fashion show begins at 7 p.m. Admission is free. For tables of eight or more, the public is encouraged to make reservations at (250) 493-9753.
