Fashion show helps stock food bank

United Church fashion show and thrift store bag sale benefit food bank and fight against Ebola.

Thank you citizens of Sicamous!

What a wonderful turnout and successful evening we had with our fabulous fashion show at Sicamous United Church on Nov. 9.

With models of all ages, shapes and sizes, we featured a sampling of the many great fashions available at the thrift shop.

Our models included members of the social justice class from Eagle River Secondary School, as well as community and congregational members.

Yup, we had everything from the sublime to the ridiculous.

The congregation provided coffee and treats, and folks brought food donations for the local resource centre food bank.

All the proceeds from the post-show $2-per bag sale, plus additional financial donations, totaling a generous $800, were sent to Doctors Without Borders for the treatment of Ebola patients in West Africa.

Thank you to Alice Duck for all your hard work organizing this project, everyone else who offered their time and talent and the community for supporting the cause.

With gratitude,

Rev. Juanita Austin (aka Second Hand Rose).
