It’s a fashion show you can’t miss.
The Dragonfly Pond Family Society is holding its annual Uniquely Fashionable Fashion Show Nov. 28 at the Lakeside Resort.
The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. and is billed as a fun evening of inclusion and community, promoting community awareness about disability, diversity and the power of inclusion.
The first hour is a cocktail reception with a cash bar followed by a dance performance put on by Okanagan Inclusion. Then the real stars of the show hit the runway.
Models for the event who will be strutting their stuff on the catwalk are the children and youth who have disabilities and/or complex care needs and their siblings.
Those attending are encouraged to celebrate the uniqueness of each child to the tune of a song they have picked out for themselves.
There will also be an opportunity to learn a little bit about each child and cheer them on as they enjoy their moment in the spotlight.
The society is committed to supporting families with children, aged birth to 18, who have physical or developmental difficulties.
They offer a wide range of programs for kids and even have a ‘respitality’ program that goes from October to March which is a combination of respite and hospitality.
That provides parents of the children an opportunity for overnight accommodations and gift certificates for meals and/or entertainment.
They also have a monthly family get together at different locations at no cost to members. No referrals or medical forms are required and membership is only $10.
