Victor’s Secret Fashion Show

Men will wear bras for a good cause at the Victor's Secret Fashion Show in Port McNeill

There will be men wearing bras for a fifth year in a row, thanks to the annual Victor’s Secret Fashion Show

being held Jan. 30 in Port McNeill at the Community Hall. The fashion show features men modelling bras that

were created by local community members. “I’m always overwhelmed by the community’s support,” said Cheryl

Beech Verbrugge, one of the committee members, when asked to comment. The doors to the Community Hall

open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets for the show go on sale Jan. 5; they are $30 and are

available at Timberland Sports or the Dalewood Beer & Wine in Port McNeill. There will be a dance after the

fashion show, and no minors are allowed as the event includes alcohol. All the proceeds from the event go to

local North Island cancer patients from Woss north. “It’s a great cause,” Verbrugge said. “We helped seven

patients in 2015, and raised over $13,000 from 2012 to 2015.”
