Pizzazz hosts event June 29 at South Surrey’s Pacific Inn

An annual fashion show set to benefit an organization that provides outreach, counselling, education and transitional housing – as well as food – for those in need will have a patriotic theme this year, to coincide with Canada’s 150th birthday.

The Pizzazz Model &Talent Showcase is set for June 29, in the ballroom of the Pacific Inn (1160 King George Blvd.).

Starting at 6:30 p.m., the evening will include entertainment and a silent auction. Local models, singers, dancers and actors will be featured beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Local and international agents, fashion co-ordinators, casting directors and photographers have been invited to scout for new talents.

The evening will conclude with awards.

According to a news release, 10 per cent of proceeds from the silent auction will be donated to NightShift Street Ministries.
