It’s getting hot in here

Sidney Fire Dept. Fashion Inferno show and calendar release set for Oct. 26

Donna Rooke and Greg Fiddick strike a pose at the Sidney fire hall in preparation for the Fashion Inferno event happening Oct. 26. The night will feature a fashion show and the launch of the 2014 Sidney Volunteer Firefighter calendar.

An event later this month will see funds raised for the Sidney Volunteer Fire Department’s centennial year celebrations.

Fashion Inferno, a fashion show and firefighter calendar release party, will take place Saturday, Oct. 26 and will feature firefighters and their friends and family modelling clothes from local businesses.

The night will also serve as the launch party for their 2014 Sidney Volunteer Fire Department firefighters calendar ($10 each) which shows volunteer firefighters in their other jobs.

“It should be a really fun night,” said one of the event organizers Kenny Podmore. “We’re really looking forward to it and so many people in the community have come together to make it happen.”

Podmore is working hand in hand with members of Sidney Meet Up and the fire department to set up the event which will feature a silent auction and appetizers alongside the fashion show.

Tickets for the event ($30) which happens at the Sidney Fire Hall, are limited. They went on sale at the Mary Winspear box office yesterday (Oct. 1) and are expected to sell out quickly. Call 250-656-0275 or visit www.marywinspear.ca to get yours.
