The 2012 Women's Wellness Show had a display from Tugwell Creek Farm and Meadery and samples were provided to attendees.

Wellness show not just for women

Annual wellness show will be held at the Prestige Hotel.

  • Mar. 6, 2013 10:00 a.m.

Presented by the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce, the Sooke Women’s Wellness Show will be taking place this year on Sunday March 10 at the Prestige Hotel in Sooke from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Visitors to the show will see the latest fashion and clothing, jewellery and accessories, cosmetics, wellness tips, and much more. The exhibitors at this year’s show are there to help women live a healthier, and happier lifestyle with several seminars on offer. There will also be plenty of door prizes for all attendees!

Vendor selection for attending the show included “anything that would really support a woman in her life, in a healthy way. Anything from parenting support to meditation and relaxation,” said Melinda Brake is the chair of the committee organizing the event.

This is the second year that the chamber has co-ordinated the event. Last year, it was held at the Sooke Harbour House. As the event grew in popularity, the chamber needed a larger venue which is why this year it will be presented at the Prestige.

“Because there’s such a vast variety of information out there, you can pull what you want from (the event). It’s a nice way to have a condensed venue to have access to a large amount of information in a simple format, and to be in an environment where everyone in there has similar ideas.” Men are also welcome to attend, Brake adds, mentioning that last year’s event was also attended by men.

Tickets $10 and are available at the door or by calling 250-642-6112. Partial proceeds will be returned to the Sooke Family Resource Society to assist with their program funding.

Sooke Women’s Wellness Show
takes place at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort, 6929 West Coast Rd.
