Event brings glitz of Hollywood to Victoria

Fundraiser evening a "classy" affair for women

Maria Manna is the event organizer for a women's Hollywood themed fundraiser for the Victoria Film Commission. The Hollywood Pajama Party happens September 17 and women are asked to come dressed in their pajamas.

Hollywood-themed martinis, appies, a photo shoot and an appearance by firefighter calendar models are all on the bill for a pyjama party of the classy sort.

The party is a fundraiser for the Greater Victoria Film Commission, a not-for-profit organization. As such, the evening’s events also feature an appearance by a Hollywood actor, yet to be named.

‘It’s a higher-end event just for women that’s never been done before,” said the event’s organizer Maria Manna. “Women can be themselves and have fun, but it’s got class and it’s for a great cause.”

The Hollywood Pyjama Party is the first such fundraiser for the commission, which helps market the region as a setting for movies, TV shows and other productions.

The event happens Sept. 17 at the Coast Victoria Harbourside Hotel and Marina, 146 Kingston St. Women are asked to come dressed in their pyjamas at 6 p.m.

Tickets include a one-night stay at the hotel, a “swag bag” worth $130, the photo shoot, food and music. There will also be a fashion show with professional models from Barbara Coultish Modeling Agency.

Tickets are $185 with a room (based on double occupancy) or $135 without. For more information or to reserve tickets, please call 250-940-1101 or email cateringvictoria@coasthotels.com.
