Parkland Secondary School grad students are getting ready to strut their stuff on the runway during a fashion show and silent auction fundraiser next month.

The event is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the grads and the class has been getting tremendous support from the community, said student organizer Raylen Lanktree.

Lanktree added that businesses in Sidney and Victoria have been donating items for the silent auction and local clothing stores have lent the students clothing to wear in the show.

“We really appreciate all the support from all the local businesses and from all of the parents and teachers involved,” she said.

This year’s show is based around a Disney theme which students have dubbed To Graduation and Beyond.

“The show itself has been pretty crazy to organize. It’s definitely stressful at times, but it’s so wonderful to see it all coming together,” said Lanktree.

“It makes me so happy that both the students involved and members of the community are excited for the show. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we have all been working so hard on the last few months.”

Students will each showcase two or three outfits from local businesses during the show and take part in choreographed numbers to entertain the crowd.

“The fashion show has been a great way to create school spirit and enthuse the grads for the busy months ahead,” said one of the show organizers, Taylor Holsten.

Funds raised from the event’s ticket sales and silent auction will go towards dry grad celebrations in June.

The Parkland grad fashion show and silent auction take place in the school’s theatre on Wednesday, April 9. Doors open at 5:45 p.m. and the silent auction runs until 7 p.m. when the fashion show starts.

Tickets ($10) will be available for purchase as of Monday, March 24 through the school by calling 250-655-2736.

Tickets will also be available at the door on the night of the show (cash only).
