Sunwest Volkswagen is hosting a Ladies’ Night at the dealership Oct. 29 at 6 p.m.

This is a fundraiser for the Comox Valley Transition Society. The goal is to raise funds while hosting an engaging, empowering and educational evening for women.

Certified Volkswagen technicians are donating their time to teach Ladies Night participants how to change a tire, check fluids, get to know the “trouble lights” in their vehicles, winter driving safety tips and of course a Q&A in which technicians are available to answer any vehicle-related question.

JET-FM will broadcast live during a fashion show and throughout the event. Volunteers from Rexall Cosmetics will provide mini-makeovers, Katie White RMT will offer Healing Touch and Thermal Palm massage, Carolyn Parker is donating emery boards from Mary Kay and other contributors throughout the community have donated to gift bags and a silent auction.

Volunteers are still needed for the Too Good To Be Threw thrift shop fashion show.  If you would like to be one of the models, contact Heather or Cheryl at the Comox Valley Transition Society at tgtbt@telus.net or call 250-338-0601.

According to the Comox Valley Transition Society’s mission statement, it is “a feminist non-profit agency committed to making a positive contribution to the lives of women and their children. We offer supportive programs that provide safety, security and promote personal well-being and the prevention of violence, through the provision of a safe shelter, counselling, education, and advocacy.”
