Victor’s Secret Fashion Show has raised over $36,000 for North Island cancer patients

“We are switching it up a little this year with a lip sync battle instead of a … fashion show”

There will be men wearing bras for the eighth year in a row at the annual Victor’s Secret Fashion Show, which is being held Jan. 26 in Port McNeill at the Community Hall.

Victor’s Secret Committee Member Cheryl Verbrugge noted there will be a slight change to the event this year, which should bring a fresh take on the fashion show for 2019.

“We are switching it up a little this year with a lip sync battle instead of a traditional fashion show or pageant,” stated Verbrugge, who added the committee puts in a lot of hours every year planning the event and they usually have committee planning meetings about six or seven months out of the year.

Verbrugge said she loves giving back to the local communities through the fashion show and that she also loves seeing everyone have a good time at the event year in and year out.

She added if residents want to see a bra creation of their own on one of the men, “enter a decorated bra to the Bra Window Contest in June-August.”

Victor’s Secret is a fundraiser that raises money for North Island cancer patients to help aid in travel expenses, accommodations, while they have to leave the North Island for treatments. The fashion show has helped 49 people in the last seven years, depositing over $36,000 since the first show.

Doors open for the event at 6:30 p.m., no minors are allowed in, and tickets are on sale in Port McNeill for $30 at Timberland Sports, Dalewood Beer and Wine, and Flora Borealis.
