Fashion show and fundraiser for Women's Resource Society on March 15

A real women fashion show and fundraiser on March 15 will help raise money to provide skin care supplies to the Women's Resource Society of the Fraser Valley.

The event will be held at the Sandman Hotel and Suites (32720 Simon Ave) in the banquet room at 6 p.m.

The event will feature a presentation by a community advocate for women, a native drum session, a makeup competition, door prizes and dancing.

Lora Bertuccio, the organizer from Face It Pro Makeup, said the event will bring together women from the community of all cultures and backgrounds.

The event hopes to raise $2,000 to purchase skin care essentials for 40 women at the Christine Lamb Residence, a supportive housing complex for women and children in Abbotsford.

Tickets are $20 and available by calling Lora Bertuccio at 604-744-0911 or by email at
