Mark R. Isfeld Secondary Graduating Class of 2019 will swagger the runway on the evening of 13 November at the Annual Grad Fashion Show. Senior secondary students will showcase a wide range of apparel from more than 20 local clothing and sportswear retailers, promoting the quality and variety of fashion available here in the Comox Valley.

The popular event has entertained parents and community members for over a decade. This year is no different. Students have been practicing and polishing their routines to deliver an impressive show themed Dancing Through the Decades, an extravaganza sure to be one of the best entertainment values in the Valley. Set against a backdrop constructed in-house, show designer and art teacher Jouska Lockquell and her students have cleverly incorporated a combination of reusable, recycled and upcycled materials to create a vibrant catwalk fitting to the upbeat theme.

Tickets for the fashion show are $5.00 in advance, available for purchase at the Isfeld office (at 1551 Lerwick Road), or a $7.00 at the door. During the event, spectators can partake in a 50/50 draw and silent auction. An assortment of concession confectionaries and treats will be available or purchase. Cash, credit and debit card accepted. A portion of the proceeds will help support the Isfeld Dry Grad event at the end of the school year. Doors open at 6 p.m. for a 7 p.m. show start. Come early. Seating is limited and will fill up fast.
