Fashion show to feed food bank

Styling Sylvan will showcase the latest summer fashions while supporting Community Partners

Several Sylvan Lake businesses are putting together a spring fashion show to support Sylvan Lake Community Partners, the Food Bank and the 198 Yukon Sea Cadets.

The event will be held at NexSource Centre on April 14 with the doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and the show starting at 7:00 p.m.

Tickets are $20 and are available at Spotted Gecko, Saks Shoes, Cobbs Clothing, Eclectica Fashions and Eyes & Ears.

Those who bring a Food Bank Donation will qualify more than once for a door prize.

“We’ve got some amazing door prizes from all over town. Just to name a few: Eclectica is going to have some clothing as door prizes, Shoppers Drug Mart is giving us a huge beauty basket, and Wing ‘n It is proving snacks for the evening,” said Cinzia Capella, representative for Community Partners and the cadets.

Capella stressed the importance of people bringing donations for the food bank.

“The Food Bank item is a big thing,” said Cappella, adding that in the summer supplies tend to dwindle and the event is a chance for people to donate food, keeping supplies topped up.

The female cadets are supporting the fashion show by helping models get dressed to show off a variety of new summer fashions.

“[They] will help the ladies in the back to get dressed and then we have our female officers showing that you can still be a woman dressed in a man’s world but you are also soft and pretty.”

Tickets include a snack and dessert and a cash bar will be available.

All proceeds from the bar will go to Community Partners. Coolers, beer and wine will be $4 each.

Guests will also be able to enter a 50/50 draw, with the proceeds going to both the Community Partners and the cadets program.
