The Snow Sisters get ready to party Vegas-style at The Royal.

The Snow Sisters Vegas night gave Fernie women the chance to spend a night in Sin City without leaving town.

The Snow Sisters is a group of women who love to recreate together in the beautiful mountain town of Fernie, and have been known for having a great time hosting fundraising events for the Relay For Life, raising over $50,000 in the past six years.

“The Snow Sisters decided that it was only natural to participate in the Relay For Life for our seventh year,” said Snow Sister Christine Grimble.

This year’s event, Snow Sisters Vegas Night, was held on May 25 at the Royal in Fernie and encouraged women to dust off their heels, find some bling and enjoy a great night out with the ladies, Vegas style! The event featured slot machine and poker tables, plus horse racing, hosted by Kevin Giffen.

“The evening was another fantastic success, raising over $5,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society. Women of Fernie we thank you for your support, enthusiasm and participation,” said Grimble.

“Cancer continues to touch so many lives, and remains an important cause to fight for. Every step we take in Relay For Life helps the Canadian Cancer Society save lives and makes a difference in the lives of Canadians fighting cancer.”
