Event is the biggest fundraiser for dry grad celebration

The annual Kwalikum Secondary School (KSS) Grad Fashion Show takes place Sunday, April 28 at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre.

The event is the largest fundraising opportunity for the grad class of 2019 to raise funds for their dry grad celebration.

Fashion show co-ordinator Rica Reimer said out of the 95 KSS graduates, so far 40 have signed up to be models in the show.

In addition to the fashion show, the event will include a silent auction, concessions, games and draws.

“We will have it all there for people to celebrate and have fun,” Reimer said.

Reimer added that close to 50 Parksville and Qualicum Beach businesses will be represented in the fashion show and silent auction.

“The community has been absolutely amazing, donating silent auction prizes and gift certificates and all kinds of stuff,” she said. “It’s amazing how well they’ve all responded.”

Last year close to 400 people attended the fashion show and this year Reimer hopes to reach 500 tickets sold.

Advance tickets are available at Revived Vintage, 102 West 2nd Ave., Qualicum Beach, for $10 or at the door for $15. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the fashion show starts at 7 p.m.
