Seventh Annual Victors Secret Fashion Show

Victor’s Secret 2018 has raised over $11,700 for North Island cancer patients.

North Island… WOW!!

The amazing Kendra Parnham-Hall, for all you do for the guys and for the committee;

To all that helped decorate the hall on Friday;

Leighann Murgatroyd Ruel, for yet again, the most amazing decorations;

To all the gentlemen that stepped up to help keep our show going this year – you were all so amazing; and

To our committee, for all the time you put into Victor’s all year round. And especially for all you do the “night of”.

You will never know how much I truly appreciate every single one of you.

And of course, the audience! Thank you all for spending your evening with us.

I am sure I have left people out and I apologize immensely, if I have.

Without every single one of the above, there is no way we could ever pull it off.

With all the blood, sweat (and tears), we have ALL pulled off our highest total to date.
