Mt. Bou to host fashion show

Graduation is an expensive time of year. Gowns, tuxedos, jewelry and photographs are only a few of the expensive items involved.

Graduation is an expensive time of year.

Gowns, tuxedos, jewelry and photographs are only a few items on a long list of expenses to celebrate the transition from adolescence to adulthood.

With that in mind, Mount Boucherie Secondary School will host a Grad/Winter Formal Fashion Show, a fundraiser to help ease the costs of the MBSS Dry Grad 2012.

“For (graduates) to participate in Dry Grad, if we don’t do any fundraising, it would be about $250. It’s a really huge expense for parents,” said Dana Elder, chairperson for the fashion show.

“Our goal is to raise as many funds as possible so we can have a Dry Grad event where the graduates don’t even have to pay.”

The fashion show will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m.

Along with an evening of fashion, guests will have the opportunity to visit various grad vendors and win door prizes in what Elder describes as a “grad extravaganza.”

“We have door prizes given to us by Andres Electronics and we’ve got four season tickets up to Big White. (Many) Westside and area businesses have also donated door prizes for the fashion show.”

Various students have stepped up to the plate and offered to brave the catwalk for the event.

“We will be having 17 young men and 17 young women modeling fashions from L’amore Bridal, Black and Lee and Moores.

The jewelry will be from Fifth Avenue Jewelry and the (evening) will be MC’d by Andres Electronics,” said Elder.

“The majority of the men are my senior football players who are all graduating. All of the girls are volunteers.”

The clothing modeled will give potential shoppers an idea of what they want to wear for the Winter Formal on Dec. 15 and the Grand March, which takes place on May 13.

Elder said that the event is open to everyone.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the MBSS Career Centre or at the door.
