Women’s show raises $1,000 for Transition Society

West Coast Women's Show raises $1,000 for the Comox Valley Transition Society.

Both days were attended well at the fourth annual Comox West Coast Women’s Show at the Comox Community Centre.

Hundreds of people came to check out this lifestyle show geared towards women. The auditorium was full of exhibits showcasing products, services and information of interest to women, as well as informative seminars.

All the seminars were well attended and over the two days about 1,000 visitors took in the show.

Organizer Trish Newton Segal was pleased with the response to the show.

“Once again women were genuinely excited to see a show like this in the valley. 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 for our fifth year!” Newton Segal says.

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

The West Coast Women’s Show was presented by 97.3 the Eagle and sponsored by the Comox Valley Record, Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa, and the Comox Valley Transition Society.
