On Tuesday, October 21, 2014, Youville Centre joined together once again with Marlene Shepherd and Shepherd’s Fashions for a fabulous Fashion FUNRaiser. A smaller, more intimate version of the Ooh ‘n Ahh Fashion Show, this event was held inside Shepherd’s Train Yards store.
Raising over $25,000 with significant contributions from Scotiabank and Shepherd’s, this event was a great success, thanks in large part to the many sponsors and donors who contributed. (Please see a list below of the sponsors and donors who helped to make this event possible.)
This year we decided to honour nine women who have made a significant impact on Youville Centre, whether it be through their work, volunteerism, donations or philanthropic initiatives. As a fun way to recognize their contributions to Youville Centre, we asked these nine women to be the models in the fashion show!
Please enjoy this gallery of our very special models from this wonderful event.
