A celebration of life with fashion and dance

Life should not only lived, it should be celebrated. With this in mind, a great evening is in store at The Club, Bermudiana Road on Wednesday, December 10 for a special fundraising Fashion and Dance event.

From 8pm there will be a fabulous fashion show, showcasing the Dana Cooper line and Rebecca Hanson's TABS authentic Bermuda shorts, with a beautiful performance by InMotion School of Dance.

All proceeds will benefit Jenna Martin, to help with expenses incurred during her treatment and recovery from ovarian cancer.

Jenna started her fight in July 2014 and has travelled to and from Boston hospitals for chemo, operations and so much pain. Throughout this time she has blogged about her experience and gained a strong local following due to her honesty and positivity. Jenna has inspired so many people that they have fundraised for her by exercising, held various functions and even shaved their heads. She is a mother to six-year-old twin boy and girl Savannah and Bryson and a wife to John.

The entry fee is $10 and raffle tickets will be on sale all night at a cost of $10.

For more information, contact Alina on 705-5040 or Suzanne on 505-0003.
