Qualicum Beach fashion show raises more than $8,500 for dry grad festivities

More than 50 Kwalikum Secondary School seniors — and a half-dozen good sports from the school’s teaching and administrative staff — strutted their stuff in a benefit for the school’s 2017 Dry Grad in the school’s annual fashion show last Tuesday at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre.

Backed by coloured lights, a fog machine and danceable soundrack, the models strode under a balloon arch and took to the runway before a receptive audience of more than 100 fashion fans.

More than $8,500 was raised at the show, which included a 50/50 draw, concession, and a silent auction with donations by dozens of local businesses and individuals.
