Weddings and proms will be the focus of a bridal and grad extravaganza and fashion show coming up this weekend.

The event takes place at the Elks Hall, Sunday, Feb. 19 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. with the  fashion show starting at  2 p.m.

BFF Fashions and Brides & Belles will be showcasing the latest fashions for proms, weddings and other occasions. A portion of the proceeds from the event will go to the Cariboo Foundation Hospital Trust towards the purchase of medical equipment, says Brides & Belles owner Kimberly Futcher.

“We have 500 tickets available and are hoping to sell at least 300,” Futcher said.

She said there will be plenty of door prizes, including the grand prize of two return tickets from Williams Lake to Vancouver, donated by Pacific Coastal Airlines, plus a $200 visa gift card donated by Brides & Belles.

Spaces for vendors are fully booked and many have donated prizes such as gift certificates, a set of acrylic nails, a mini photo session and hotel rooms to name a few.

Attendance is required in order order to enter the draws. For 2017 big floral prints or two piece gowns with high necks are popular for prom, Futcher said. Tickets are $15 and available at Brides & Belles, The Realm of Toys and A&B Photo in 100 Mile House.
