Women’s Show will be a showcase of talent

Sooke Harbourside Lions will be holding a full-day event at the Prestige

The Sooke Harbourside Lions will be hosting their third Sooke Women’s Show, which will feature an afternoon of shopping, fun, food and fashion.

The event will take place at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort ballroom on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 11 a.m to 4:30 p.m.

Laurie Spencer, Sooke Harbourside Lion, said there will be local and out-of-town vendors — including small and home-based businesses — showcasing and selling merchandise.

“We try to invite as many local businesses to get involved as possible,” Spencer said.

A fashion show featuring local designers will also be held for eyes of the style savvy.

Spencer said the event will give people the opportunity to do something “different” while donating to a good cause.

“All the money raised down there goes towards our women and children charities, that’s our mandate, helping women and children in need locally and internationally.”

Spencer listed a few charitable efforts that would benefit from the event, including the Toys for Kids project, camperships for Camp Shawnigan, the Sooke Transition House and camperships for children with juvenile diabetes.

“The big one this year will be Toys for Kids because it’s growing each year… there seems to be more people that are needing it and that’s a big, big expense at Christmas time.”

Prizes will be awarded throughout the afternoon, with the grand draw prize being a one night stay at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort.

Goodie bags containing items from different merchants will also be given out to attendees.

Last year the event had 300 people trek through the fashion fair.

Tickets are $10 each and are available at Pemberton Holmes and Shoppers Drug Mart.
