Join us! For a night of fashion, safer sex education and fun from the fantastical land from down the rabbit hole. We sincerely hope you will help us in our efforts to make a difference in the lives of people in our community who are affected by HIV/AIDS.
Who: ARCHES is a local non-profit organization that provides leadership in building individual and community capacity to respond to, and reduce the harm associated with HIV and Hepatitis C in Southwestern Alberta.
What: Our signature annual event: The Condom Couture Fashion Fundraiser! The 2019 theme for our event is Alice and Wonderland, featuring décor and couture from a place like no other on Earth, a land full of wonder, mystery and danger! The night includes a live drag show, a fashion show featuring outfits constructed out of condoms, lip sync battles, balloon bust and more.
Why: Proceeds from the Condom Couture Fashion Fundraiser will support ARCHES’ programming for individuals affected by HIV/AIDS, as well as our educational programs focused on prevention and awareness. Every 3 hours a person in Canada is infected with HIV, and 20% of people living with HIV are unaware that they are HIV positive.
When: Saturday November 23. 2019. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show begins at 8:00 p.m
Where: The Exhibition Park West Pavilion
