“Bad” Alice and the Mad Hatter raise funds for food bank

Sooke's La Petite Boutique is holding a different kind of fashion show

It may not be in the Christmas  or holiday theme, but it’s all about fun and fashion.

Kristen Lindal owner of La Petite Boutique is putting on a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party as a fundraiser for the Sooke Food Bank.

So, it’s basically about a “Bad” Alice and the Mad Hatter, and the people sitting down for tea will be the audience.

“It’s any excuse for me to dress people up,” said Lindal. “It’s going to be a fun evening and we’re going to feed people with really good food.”

The food will be made by the team from La Petite Boutique and Kathy’s Corner.

Lindal said she hasn’t had a fashion show for awhile and six models will be walking the room, showing off the garments which will be a bit far-fetched with some of the accessories — just for fun.

The decor of the store at the moment is sort of a cross between Steampunk and Alice in Wonderland, thus the theme.

The slightly surreal fashion and tea party takes place on Friday, December 12 at 6 p.m. Seating will be limited, so it is advised to get there early. Donations to the Sooke Food Bank will be accepted.

La Petite Boutique is located on 6707 West Coast Road.

 

The Sooke Food Bank gives food and Christmas hampers to the less fortunate in the region. Each year the need grows.

There will be a Sooke Fire Department Santa Run through Sooke on December 13 from 4 to 9 p.m. Fire trucks will be cruising through the Sooke region and people can meet them at the end of their driveways to donate food or money for the food bank. Similar runs are taking place in Otter Point and East Sooke.

Donation bags will be in the Sooke News Mirror of they can be picked in the office at 6631 Sooke Road.
