I was so honoured to be part of the Little Black Dress Gala on May 26th, at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. What an amazing event for me as Miss BC World to attend, which was attended by around 1000 guests from the Vancouver area.
The Little Black Dress Gala was a gathering for socially minded individuals with heart for giving back and seeing change happen in the city of Vancouver. The Gala showcased opera, dance and a large fashion show with many Vancouver designers who came together to share their work and meet with like-minded individuals.
It is also a fundraiser for the organization called Help Change My City which helps underprivileged youth in downtown Vancouver. They are a young community, intentionally designed with mentorship character development, personal growth, leadership and skills training at its core. They are dedicated to breaking down the negative reputation and stigma that surrounds young people who have had a difficult and troubled past.
The opportunity to attend was also offered to single mothers or struggling women from the downtown core of Vanc0uver by other guests, who donated tickets for them. A “little black dress” was also available for them to wear, so they too felt special at this wonderful event.
Being part of the Little Black Dress Gala was such a truly unique and fantastic experience. I was so inspired by the people in the city of Vancouver and how everyone came together to raise money for such an amazing cause.
