The city’s fashion stars are getting ready to hit the runway for the Simcoe Community Services Foundation’s 16th annual Fashion Show and Silent Auction, Thursday, April 28.
‘Reach for the Stars’ features apparel from Janet Kemp, John McNabb Clothier, Mark’s Work Wearhouse and Mountain Equipment Co-op. They have all contributed to the show, proceeds of which go to support the foundation’s work.
The foundation partners with Simcoe Community Services to support children and adults with disabilities, across Simcoe County. It’s mission is to “enhance the quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities at all life stages” by building relationships, fostering community understanding and acceptance, and generating resources.
Denise Garrido, the current Miss World Canada, will be on hand; Jamie Hall and Tara Dawn from the B101 morning show will emcee, as they have done for previous shows. The evening includes a silent auction for items donated by Barrie retailers, restaurants and services.
The show kicks off at 6:30 p.m., when the doors open, and 7:30 p.m. when the models begin to take to the runway. It’s at the Athletic Centre at Georgian College`s main campus. Light refreshments will be served and a cash bar will be available. Parking at the campus will be free for all patrons who stay until the show is completed.
RBC Dominion Securities, Georgian College, and the Barrie chapter of Business and Professional Women are the show’s sponsors. Tickets are $35 or $250 for a table of eight. 8. Click here for tickets.
