Legion fashion show a hit


There was a sell-out crowd attending the Mamma Mia Ladies’ Night Only dinner and fashion show held at the Royal Canadian Legion May 26. All 160 tickets were sold for the event that was staged as a fundraiser for the Legion and featured a fashion show of clothing from Lavender Lingerie, Suzanne’s & Jenny’s, and Just Because. Among the models were 2011 Stampede Queen contestants Miss Cariboo Spurs Apparel and Tack Alexia Colton (left), Miss Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association Bobi Bracewell, and Miss Macon Construction Davana Mahon. In addition to the fashion show, jewelry and cosmetic consultants presented their products. The Italian-themed dinner featured spaghetti and meatballs, bruschetta and an Italian dessert. Legion volunteers made 950 meatballs and 379 Italian cookies for the dinner, says Jan Hermiston, one of the event organizers.
