High school graduation may still be a few months away but organizing and fundraising for Dry Grad is in full swing.
A fashion show with Bob’s Footwear & Apparel is one of the fun fundraising events now in the planning stages for April.
“One of the teachers at Lake City Secondary School, Robin Fofonoff, and I are working together, with a large amount of the work being done by grads, to organize the Dry Grad fundraiser fashion show,” says Jackie Austin, who co-owns Bob’s with Julie Augustine.
Austin says the models will mostly be graduates with a few children and teachers on the runway as well to showcase the wide variety of clothing and footwear available at Bob’s.
The shop carries popular clothing brands such as Carhartt and Under Armour, along with boot and shoe brands such as Red Wing, Bundstone and Timberland.
Some of the shop’s collection of clothing and shoes for infants and small children will also be on the runway.
“Although we are still your work boot specialists for over 60 years, we now carry a very diverse inventory of footwear, clothing and accessories, Austin says. “Something for everyone.”
There will be an intermission where students will perform and desserts and beverages will be available for purchase.
All proceeds go to the 2017 Dry Grad party.
The Bob’s Footwear & Apparel fashion show takes place at the LCSS Williams Lake Campus commons on Tuesday, April 11 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the fashion show starts at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $10 each and available at Bob’s Footwear & Apparel or at Lake City Secondary Williams Lake campus.
Dry Grad takes place Saturday, June 10 at the Cariboo Memorial Complex.
The 2017 theme is Neon Black Light Dance Party.
