Cheesecake and You a delectable afternoon

Event raises $900 for local OAPO branch

A sold-out crowd delighted in cheesecake and an array of cheery dresses during the Cheesecake and You event on Jan. 28.

The fundraiser, hosted by the Williams Lake Seniors Activity Centre raised $900 for the local OAPO.

Many took advantage of the opportunity to try out some tasty strawberry cheesecake and socialize for part of the afternoon, which finished with a fashion show displaying dresses and clothing from BFF Fashions and Brides & Belles.

Ten models of varying ages sashayed and strutted around the hall showing a variety of different aesthetics including full out evening ware, to more informal outfits.

“The fashion show was a rousing success,” said Brides and Belles owner and organizer Kimberly Futcher. “The cheesecake with strawberries was incredible.”
