Fashion fundraiser

A fashion show and shopping night will be held at a White Rock boutique Thursday to raise money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

The initiative – called Vasanji Cares – was inspired by a young girl named Elizabeth Tichelman, who wanted to do something for her grandmother. When the girl's mother, Tracy Tichelman, decided to organize a fundraiser, White Rock business owner Raz Vasanji offered his store as a venue.

The event is now scheduled for May 26 at Boutique Vasanji, 1391 Johnston Rd. Twenty per cent of the store's total sales from the evening will be donated to the fundraising effort.

The event will also include a door prize raffle for gift baskets and certificates donated by local businesses.

"The fundraiser is a wonderful opportunity for us to give back to the community, and we are grateful that we can contribute to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and support the fight against breast cancer," Vasanji said.

Tickets, $10, can be purchased at the store, by calling 604-560-5111 or emailing
