Sock Hop raises money for Anti-Violence Advocates

Anti-Violence Advocates Annual Gala in Barriere had a Sock Hop theme this year

The Anti-Violence Advocates Annual Gala had a Sock Hop theme this year and was held Saturday, Mar. 9 in the Barriere Lions Hall. The annual event is a fundraiser for the Society so they can fund a number of projects within the community, one being Respectful Relationships offered at the local high school.

It was a packed house of women who turned out for the Sock Hop where they enjoyed great food and drinks, music, good friends, and even an ice cream, banana split and milkshake bar.

The ladies were also treated to a fashion show, and competed in best costume and best hair contests.

District of Barriere Mayor Ward Stamer served as bartender, and the boys basketball team fundraised by serving as bus boys for the evening.
