An intergenerational fashion show set for Thursday will raise much-needed funds for Sources Connections Café.
An Evening of Timeless Fashion fundraiser will be held at the South Surrey Recreation & Arts Centre, 14601 20 Ave., with proceeds benefiting the cafe, also located in the rec centre.
The Connections Café funds many of Sources’ initiatives, Surrey Youth Services employee Corrie Elliott told Peace Arch News.
“It was originally created as a social enterprise to offer employment and mentorship opportunities for youth and seniors. And the proceeds from the café go to helping out different organizations in the community that Sources supports, including the women’s centre and food bank,” Elliott said.
The organization of the fundraiser has been divvied up between rec centre staff and student volunteers, who will also offer their time to serve, model and plan the show, set to begin at 6:30 p.m.
Local businesses have donated items for the prize draws and gift baskets, and the evening will also feature food and drinks, a candy bar, live music and art auction.
Tickets are $15 for youth (13-18 years old) or $30 for adults 19 years and older.
