Organizer Trish Newton Segal was pleased with the response to the third annual Comox West Coast Women’s Show at the Comox Community Centre.

“Once again women were genuinely excited to see a show like this in the Valley,” she said. “Women are natural gatherers of knowledge and with the wide variety of information showcased at the show it was a very exciting place to be. The show will definitely be back again next year.”

There were more than 50 exhibits showcasing products, services and information of interest to women, as well as seminars. There was great interest in the latter. Over the course of two days about 1,200 visitors took in the show.

The first 200 attendees each day received a flower compliments of the Comox Quality Foods floral department.

The grand prize winner of the Ultimate Girls Night In was Cumberland resident Mikki Nicklin. She won two nights accommodation for four in a spa bungalow suite at Tigh-Na-Mara Resort in Parksville.

Pampering in the grotto spa boosted the value of the package to $1,500.

The best displays were Rattan Plus (first), Party Lite (runner-up) and Iris Visual Group (third).

A  $1,000 cheque was presented to the Comox Valley Transition Society from some of the proceeds. Each year, more than 1,500 women and children seek support to deal with issues arising from abuse and violence.

The show was presented by 97.3 the Eagle and sponsored by the Comox Valley Record, Tigh-Na-Mara and the Transition Society.
