Kimmunity Angels get cozy

The organization hosted a pajama fundraiser and raised $5,000 on March 24

Dressed up in their best evening ware, the Kimmunity Angels raised roughly $5,000 during their Pajama Party fundraiser on March 24.

Approximately 200 people danced and pampered themselves in their pajamas at the Terrace Arena Banquet Room, which included door prizes, a silent auction, and beauty services.

“The event was a huge success, everywhere you looked there were smiles and laughter,” wrote Donna Slavik, society member and event organizer in an email. “There was a great spirit throughout the whole evening.”

The evening started with a fashion show which showcased 11 models outfitted by several local shops including the Glow Boutique, Sidewalkers, Ella, Halo and Tribes. Mason Jar Studio held three classes that evening, and beauty services were provided by Gloss Studio, Get Nailed, Skin Laser by CKyN, and Trevana Mobile Massage.

The Terrace Northmen Rugby team was also there to serve the bar and make sure the ladies who bought and sat at the Princess Tables didn’t go without food or drinks all evening.

Each of the 24 businesses who participated donated one of their products to the silent auction, which included items from Grass Roots Goodies, Epicure, Lipscense and Harmony Hands.

Slavik said the $5,000 raised will be used for medical travel, purchase of medical equipment or therapy, and any other medical needs that come through the Kimmunity Angels.

The society provides financial assistance to seriously ill individuals for who need help with their medical expenses.
