CANSA is looking for volunteer cat walkers to help them with an upcoming fashion show. Auditions are Saturday Jan. 12, at 24 Crescent Ave.
"Since we've been talking about it we have had several people come foreword looking to volunteer," said CANSA executive director Liz Cooke-Sumbu.
A silent auction will take place for the clothes after the show, with the proceeds going to a new scholarship CANSA hopes to establish.
"Were hoping to offer two scholarships at a minimum of $500 each in Cumberland County," said Cooke-Sumbu.
There's no pre-requirements for models besides a 16 and over age cap. They're just looking for guys and girls to come out and help, she said.
"You don't have to be a Marilyne Monroe."
The clothes will be newer fashion but the designers will be adding an African flair, said volunteer Donna Martin.
The native dress look is mostly loose, bright coloured clothes with a lot of gold trimming and African print, she said.
"I think it (the show) will be a great success.'
If this year's show goes well, then hopefully it will become and annual event, said Cooke-Sumbu.
But it's hard to design clothes without material, so anyone wishing to donate should contact CANSA.
