Hope getting fashionable next weekend

Second Spring Fashion Show raises money for hospital mattresses

Saturday’s fashion show benefiting the Fraser Canyon Hospital is already sold out, and it’s set to be a classy affair for a cause close to home for many residents.

Co-chair of the event Nancy Hutsul said she’s heard from many community members looking for tickets, one person telling her they would go as far as posting on the Facebook bulletin board to score a seat or two at the Saturday, April 14 event.

In its second iteration, the spring fashion show will showcase local and Valley fashion retailers and will raise much-needed money for the purchase of new specialized mattresses for the hospital.

“The auxiliary tries to raise money every year for equipment, that is the highest priority for the hospital. They really identified the need for upgrading beds for more patient comfort. They’re modern technological wonders and they’re not inexpensive,” Hutsul said of the 10 beds to be purchased.

Hosted by the Auxiliary to Fraser Canyon Hospital and Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation, the event will see models wearing garments from Hope businesses Broke Buckle Clothing Company, Ringing Bell Robes by Linda Kay Peters, Hope Outdoors and the Hope Golf and Country Club Pro Shop as well as down-Valley brands.

Anyone who didn’t get a ticket to the event taking place at Hope Golf Course Saturday, April 14, can still purchase raffle tickets. Two tickets to anywhere WestJet flies are the grand prize.
