Rock concert meets fashion show Nov. 7

According to promoter Diane Gladman, “This event is about raising money by showcasing the powerful connection between fashion and music.”

On Saturday, Nov. 7 starting at 7 p.m. in the Travelodge Silver Bridge’s ballroom, music lovers have the chance to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Cowichan Valley while dancing the night away at an event called Fashion Rocks for Charity.

According to promoter Diane Gladman, “This event is about raising money by showcasing the powerful connection between fashion and music.”

The evening will include a fashion show featuring local clothing merchants plus the final chance to hear a rock music performance by the Valley’s own Trace the Sky band.

To top the evening off there will be dancing to local deejay, Kyle.

Big Brother Big Sisters is a great cause, according to Gladman.

“As Canada’s leading child and youth mentoring charity, Big Brothers Big Sisters facilitates life-changing relationships that inspire and empower children and youth to reach their potential, both as individuals and citizens,” she said.

“It has been a vision of mine since seeing the first time something like this was done. I think it started as an event to raise money for AIDS awareness. It was a huge event with a fashion show happening during a rock show. While talking with a few of my girlfriends about doing things we have never done before I brought it up. Their response was ‘Let’s do it!’ So we are. The bittersweet part of this story is it will be Trace the Sky’s last show as the band is calling it quits. But, what better way to go out then sharing the stage with fabulous models and raising money for a great cause,” Gladman said.

Tickets are $30 each. Get them at the door.
