Fashion show for charity surpasses goal

The models strutted their stuff on the catwalk to aid food bank

On a perfect summer afternoon, La Petite Boutique put on a catwalk of a fashion show, along with a bake sale and auction, to raise funds for the Sooke Food Bank. In total, $915 were raised ($815 from the fashion show, and $100 from the Karate club).

β€œI am so happy we were able to raise such a big amount for the food bank,” said Ashley Manning, co-coordinator of the event and creator of the candy fashions. β€œIt far surpassed our goal of $500 that we had.”
