Victoria firefighters and fashion a red-hot mix

Annual Fashion Inferno a fundraiser for firefighter's charity

Victoria firefighters will be among the models strutting their stuff on the catwalk next Thursday (Aug. 15) as part of the annual Fashion Inferno charity fundraiser.

The event, on from 7 p.m. to midnight in the outdoor courtyard of Capital Iron, offers tapas from a variety of local restaurants, a fashion show featuring clothing from Outlooks for Men, Knickers Lingerie Boutique and others, musical entertainment from Brent Tyler, Steph Macpherson and DJ Neon Steve, plus a full refreshments bar.

All proceeds go to the Victoria Firefighters Charitable Foundation, which supports various non-profit groups around the city of Victoria.

“It’s a great evening full of food, fashion and dancing, all for a good cause,” said foundation spokesperson and firefighter Nate Forster. “Capital Iron does such a fantastic job of setup and we get the fire trucks down there. Basically everything you spend goes to the charity.”

Tickets are $30 for general admission, available at Capital Iron, Page One Publishing, Fire Station No. 3 (740 Bay St.), Shampoo Hair Bar, Outlooks for Men & Knickers Lingerie Boutique. Tickets will be available onsite for food and beverages. Capital Iron is at 1900 Store St.
