VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/16/12 -- On December 15th, HiVE Vancouver will host "A Celebration of Dignity" - a gala fundraiser benefitting Beauty Night Society to celebrate and showcase the lives positively affected by Beauty Night Society and to celebrate the 12 Year Anniversary of this charitable organization. The evening will feature a runway show to showcase eco fashions modeled by the women who have participated in the Beauty Night program. The evening will be hosted by Canadian motivational speaker and comedian, Jessica Holmes. The fundraiser will bring together the Beauty Night community as well as local organizations and businesses.
Beauty Night's mission is to build self-esteem and change lives for women and youth living in poverty. This is done by creating life makeovers for impoverished mothers, at-risk youth, seniors and sex workers through three streams of programming: wellness, makeovers and life skills. Founded in 2000 by Caroline MacGillivray, Beauty Night has given over 26,000 life makeovers to foster positive self-image, motivate inner self-renewal and reintroduce healthy touch. It started as one event, now flourishing as four, volunteer-run weekly events that provide beauty & wellness services in a safe and empowering environment.
Tickets for this event are available to purchase from HiVE Vancouver or Eventbright for $125. The event includes entertainment, a wine reception, a selection of hors d'oeuvres and desserts, door prizes and a raffle draw. Catering is being sponsored by PiDGiN Restaurant. All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to help the Beauty Night Society fulfill its mission and expand its wellness programming.
