Second women's show being held at Prestige Oceanfront Resort

Coming up with interesting and unique fundraising ideas isn’t easy but when a good idea works it makes all the difference.

Last year Susan Bennett and George Medwedrich held a successful women’s show and when they were asked for ideas for a Sooke Harbourside Lions fundraiser they refloated the idea.

The second Sooke Women’s Show will be held on Saturday, Nov. 5 at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort and Convention Centre, sponsored by the Harbourside Lions and Prestige.

“The reason we did it is our club is so giving and hardworking and this is a new way to raise funds,” said project coordinator Sue Bennett. “We saw how much fun and successful it was last year.”

So what do attendees have to look forward to at the women’s show?

Bennett said there will be a fashion show with design from Jockey Wear, no host food table and bar, silent auction and a presentation by Britt Santowski, author of The Three Strategies of the Unstoppable Woman, plus 41 vendors selling products and services. There will be two tarot card readers, home party people, jewelry, wedding planners as well as hairdressers and spas represented.

“There is a very is big variety of vendors,” said Bennett. “Shop for Christmas and support a good cause.

Each woman receives a gift bag and the opportunity to spend a day, half day or even just a couple of hours pampering herself. Even more fun would be to bring along a couple of girlfriends, your mother, daughter or daughter-in-law, or even your grandmother.

The grand prize is a two night stay at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort. All of the proceeds go to the Sooke Transition House and other Harbourside Lions projects for women and children in need.

The event runs from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort and Convention Centre at 6929 West Coast Rd.
