On Dec. 4, the Northern Bar and Stage is hosting a fashion show in support of the Salvation Army Food Bank.

Dubbed Fashion 4 Food, the event was the brainchild of the restaurant’s owner, Todd Shipley.

“We’ve recently been talking about how we want to get the Northern and the Northern staff more involved in community events,” said Sadie Broughton, Northern employee and organizer of the event. “We just want to help out around town a lot more, so this is one idea that he had and we are kind of just going with it.”

Broughton organized for local shops and retailers to participate, dressing models in various outfits for the fashion show. Hempire, Freyja, Gear Hub, Board Stiff, Commit and Edge of the World are all partaking in the evening, and Broughton has enlisted the help of local friends to model the trends for the evening.

“All of the money from the door is going to go to the Salvation Army food bank and we are also going to be accepting non-perishable food items as donation as well,” said Broughton, adding the cover fee is $10 per person.

“It’s advertising for shops around town as well as helping out the Food Bank and doing it for a good cause.”

Broughton credited the community for coming together to support charitable causes often.

“The community is incredible for helping out. Anytime there is a charity event, I feel like Fernie comes together and everyone’s support is quite a bit. It’s an amazing community for that,” she said. “Fernie is very giving.”
