Bodacious Events!
So happy to be working with Project True on their next event…Please have a read…

Project True in partnership with Social Mod Pr will be putting on the first ever True Fashion Show and Fundraiser September 26 from 7:30-10:30 at Heritage Hall on Main Street.

Our goal for the evening is to raise as close to $150,000 as possible, to open a day treatment facility in Vancouver. Our hope is to give affordable access and support to anyone suffering from disordered eating.

Currently, British Columbia only has five hospital beds dedicated to patients who the doctor has deemed in critical due

to their eating disorders. Beyond that, there are few options for those struggling, regardless of the severity of their health.

Out of all mental illnesses, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate; more people die of disordered eating each year than they do of cancer.

We are going to be showcasing four local fashion designers who project a healthy body image by making and selling to real women. Attendees will also be serenaded by acoustic performer, Ashley Slater and be listening to beats by DJ Chelsea J All Day.

For $30 you could help save a life!

We will also have a silent auction of locally made products, some sweet treats and a cash bar.
