Last year's event was so fun that we just have to do it again!
Join us for a fab afternoon full of fine fashions (new and used) as well as (yep, you guessed it) chocolate! Volunteers from the Thrift Shop will be modeling fashions from the store including every day wear, vintage and formal fashions from Chantal's Bridal & Formal. You loved them so we are bringing some celebrity models back as well including Janet Stewart from CBC and Maralee Carusso from CTV!
Your favourite volunteer models from the store include Ruby, Mikaelle, Claudette, Susan, Abdul, Otto, Beatriz, Donna L and Donna V, to name a few! Your favourite Crisis Support Worker (Stan the Man) may also strut the run way! Other supermodels include Joanne Lesko, Misty Blake-Knox and Marcy Proskurnik!
Make sure to have some cash on hand as there will be silent auction prizes (awesome ones) as well as a pop up shop!
$20 tickets are available by calling 204-772-9091 or in store at 555 Spence St. (10am-4pm, Mon to Sat). Online tickets ($25) are available at eventbrite.ca/e/thrive-thrift-fashion-show-tickets-37812360789
About Thrive Community Support Circle and the Thrive Thrift Shop:
Founded in 1973 as a crisis line for pregnant women, Thrive Community Support Circle (formerly known as Pregnancy & Family Support Services) is committed to offering services that support women, pregnant women, men and children at all stages, cultivate family life, empower individuals and grow community.
Over the years, the agency has established a significant presence in the inner city. We serve many families with diverse needs from our three sites, all located near the intersection of Spence St and Sargent Ave in the West End of Winnipeg. We operate Therapy and Support Services, the Family Resource Centre, and the Family Childcare Centre. We also operate the Thrive Thrift Shop, which offers important support to the community by providing volunteer work experience to people of diverse abilities and skills while selling clothing and household goods at very affordable prices.
A community project and social enterprise of Thrive, the Thrift Shop aims to empower families and individuals. It does this both by providing access to good quality clothing and household items at affordable prices, and by providing volunteer opportunities where individuals can learn employment skills and gain work experience. We work with volunteers from various programs, including disability programs, work experience programs, the Fine Options program, and volunteers doing court-mandated community service.
