For many of our local retailers these can be tough economic times, but the generosity of this community is a good reminder of why we all want to live in the Comox Valley.
Habitat For Humanity Women Build participants have committed to not only construct one of six housing units underway, but to also raise $100 000 for the project. Valley businesses have stepped up to the plate to help.
“The generosity and sincerity of our retailers’ support to Women Build’s various fundraising events is overwhelming,” said Laurel Bazett, an organizer for the coming Beautiful Me Fashion Show. This fun spring event will feature a number of fashion and beauty retailers, models, music, entertainment, prizes, and discounts.
And did we mention the Valley’s very own firefighters who will take to the catwalk for Women Build?
“At this time, I can only say that my community has made me proud,” added Bazett. “The response from each retailer approached to either participate in Beautiful Me or to contribute to make it a spectacular event was smiles, heartfelt sincerity and true goodwill to assist in any way possible.
“I can’t help but feel a local pride and wish to send out a bouquet of flowers to each of our supporters. Everyone has been so helpful and giving, from the five participating fashion retailers, to the door prize contributors, and an extra big shout-out to the firefighters for signing on to the show.”
The Beautiful Me Step into Spring Fashion Show will take place the evening of April 5 at the Bridge Lounge from 7:30 to 9:30. Tickets are available at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Ricki’s, and Cherry Wine.
