A Day In Her Shoes - Spring 2013

On Wednesday, May 8, we were very fortunate to be involved again this year with a key fundraiser for the Canadian Mental Health Association - "A Day In Her Shoes"! The sold-out event was a raving success and raised much-needed funds for our local CMHA branch and programs.

Here are some pictures highlighting the event!

This year, we are thrilled to announce that the silent auction portion of the event raised over $4,500! Thank you to all who bid and to the lucky ladies who won!

The event featured a fashion show with Spring styles from Envy, Samuel & Co, along with the beautiful collection of shoes and sandals from Manchester Shoe Salon. It was such a fun day getting everyone ready for the show. Makeup was provided by Made You Blush Beauty Boutique and Element5 Spa, local beauty hot spots in Market Square. Accessories and jewellery were provided by Inspire Collections. 

The models had so much fun working the runway!

The night ended with a moving presentation by celebrity guest speaker, Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau! Sophie is a former CTV eTalk correspondent, model and wife to Justin Trudeau! She shared her inspiring story of overcoming an eating disorder throughout her 20's. Sophie also explained how she maintains balance and well-being in her busy life - trying to balance a career, supporting her husband's political aspirations and most important, raising her young family.

You could hear a pin drop while she was speaking, the crowd was mesmerized by her message!

Thank you so much to all those who attended and supported this important CMHA fundraising event, we hope you enjoyed yourselves! Planning has already started for A Day In Shoes 2014!

Happy Spring!
