Raising money for the catwalk

The Hospital Auxiliary to Fraser Canyon (FCH) and Fraser Hope Lodge will be putting on a fashion show to raise funds for a new bus

Barbara Moeller is the new president of The Hospital Auxiliary to Fraser Canyon (FCH) and Fraser Hope Lodge. The volunteer of 25 years looks forward to fundraising and recruiting new volunteers.

The Hospital Auxiliary to Fraser Canyon (FCH) and Fraser Hope Lodge is set to host a unique two-day fashion event to raise money for a bus to go toward the day program at the hospital.

Clothing and accessories will be provided by SWISH boutique of Gibsons B.C. Owner Lynn Ujvary is passionate about celebrating women and helping them to feel good about themselves.

“The focus is not so much on SWISH and her products but more on bringing women in the local communities together to celebrate each other,” said Corina Vogt Manager of Clinic Services at FCH.

The Fashion Show is Wednesday Mar. 9 at the Hope Golf Course. Dinner is at 6 p.m. followed by the fashion show at 7 p.m.

Bar drinks are available for purchase and there is a raffle.

Tickets are $40 and are available at the FCH Gift Shop, Pharmasave, or online at www.FVHCF.ca

The Fashion Clinics are on March 10 at the hospital conference room from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cost to attend the clinics is a $5 donation, and tickets are sold at the administration office at the hospital. There is a scarf clinic, an accessory clinic, and a clinic on dressing for your body type.

Clothing and accessories are available for purchase in the hospital cafeteria. Tickets are not required for entry to this part of the event.

The bus in Hope is utilized by both the Adult day Program (ADP) and Fraser Hope Lodge. The ADP supports older adults to remain in their homes instead of in residential care. The bus gives them access to services including nursing care, mobility exercises, social interaction and therapeutic activities. While meeting the needs of clients, it also supports families who are caregivers and in need of respite.

Fraser Hope Lodge utilizes the bus to take residents on community outings, adding to their quality of life.

Hospital staff can contact corina.vogt@fraserhealth.ca for tickets or for more information. Both events are open to the public.
