Move Fashion Show suppports Women’s Resource Society

Event takes place Friday, May 29 in Abbotsford

The second annual Move Fashion Show will benefit the Women’s Resource Society of the Fraser Valley (WRSFV).

The event takes place Friday, May 29 at 35562 Mercer Ave. in the Matsqui flats.

Move is a fashion movement created to showcase what local businesses have to offer. Come find trendy wearable fashions and modern hair designs, or discover the hippest way to market your business.

More than 200 guests and 75 volunteers contributed to last year’s show, which raised over $4,000.

The event is being hosted by Chantel Funk Design Inc., an organization that is passionate about giving back to the community.

The WRSFV supports women, children, and youth who have experienced violence in their lives. The non-profit organization runs programs from 10 locations in Mission and Abbotsford.

Some programs include: victim services, outreach support services, multicultural outreach support services (Punjabi), stopping the violence counselling, children who witness abuse counselling, first and second stage housing projects, transition houses (shelters for battered women), a pregnancy outreach program, and a thrift boutique called Fronya.

Tickets to the fashion show are $28 each and available at chantelfunkdesigninc.com. For more information about WRSFV, visit wrsfv.ca.
