Tickets are still available for a charity fashion show taking place in Aberdeen next week.
Friends of Anchor’s Brave promises to be a fun, but poignant evening, as 24 men who have, or are, battling cancer take to the catwalk at the Beach Ballroom.
Guests will enjoy a two-course dinner, music, raffles and, of course, the latest looks in casual and formal wear.
Limited tickets still remain for the first Brave show on May 5, and the charity’s communications lead Erica Banks is urging people to snap them up for an “electric” night.
Bringing their ‘A-game’
Miss Banks said the 24 male models have been bringing their “A game” in the weekly rehearsals.
“They’re such natural entertainers and there are so many big personalities and wonderful people among the group to watch on stage,” she said.
“Every week we’ve seen their confidence grow hugely. We’ve seen them working on their little dance routines and stunts and things that they’re going to do on the catwalk too. This is going to be a proper show for everyone.”
Money from the tickets sold for the two nights will going towards the Anchored Together appeal.
The charity is aiming to raise £2million for additional investment in the Anchor centre which is due to be open in Aberdeen next year.
‘Promises to be a unforgettable evening’
Although the fundraising side is important, Miss Banks said it is the experiences that the model’s take from the event that is the big win.
She added: “A big part of Friends of Anchor is the fundraising side of things but first and foremost it’s about the experience that the 24 men in the line-up take from it.
“We see friendships built that last for a lifetime and we see confidence grow hugely.
“The development that you see in the weeks go by that then unfold on show days as well is really special so we would love to see some more people in the audience watching the magic happen.
“Every year Brave promises to be a unforgettable evening. It has a really electric atmosphere every single year.
“It promises to have party energy, great music, great entertainment from the guys and a really, really fun night so we would love to see some people come on board and buy a ticket for a night of fun.”
There are still some tickets available for the 7pm show on Thursday, May 5 at the Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen.
These can be purchased individually for the event or there are also some table availabilities for up to eight people for those planning on bringing a few friends.
Tickets are £45 per person and all include a free drink and foodie favour on arrival, as well as a two course meal and a fun night of entertainment.
