VIDEO: Sold out fashion show raises money for hospital beds

The second local fundraiser of its kind makes charity stylish

The 2018 Fraser Canyon Hospital Spring Fashion Show wowed guests Saturday night at the Hope Golf Club.

Exceeding the previous event’s fundraising take, the event displayed regional talent including designers, models and singers.

A sold out crowd helped fund 10 new hospital beds for Fraser Canyon, a much-needed upgrade for the facility.

Held every second year, the next fashion show is expected in 2020.
