Collingwood Fashion Show for Breast Cancer

April 15, 2004

By Catherine Barr


Close to 2 million North American women were diagnosed with breast cancer in the 1990s - over 500,000 of them died. Yet, while the numbers remain high, the chances of defeating this disease are getting better and better every year thanks to increased funding and awareness. In keeping with this thought, the students at Collingwood school decided to dedicate their recent spring fashion show to this very worthwhile cause. Held at Hollyburn Country Club on April 15, invited guests were treated to an evening of fashions as modelled by some of West Vancouver's most beautiful young men and women. Congratulations Collingwood students, you do us proud.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
