CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 -- Ovarian Cancer Canada is pleased to present the first-ever LOVE HER gala in Calgary on Thursday, March 7 at Hotel Arts. The fashionable evening affair will bring hundreds of Calgarians together to raise funds and increase awareness around ovarian cancer, the most fatal of all women's cancers.
Calgary philanthropist W. Brett Wilson and Canadian comedienne Jessica Holmes will serve as Masters of Ceremony for LOVE HER, which will include a cocktail reception, runway fashion show and performance by internationally-acclaimed singer, composer and violinist, Sophie Serafino.
"As someone with ovaries AND a love of fashion, I'm stoked about LOVE HER," said Holmes, whose credits include The Royal Canadian Air Farce, Second City, Just for Laughs and her own sketch series, The Holmes Show. "I'm thrilled that it's my second year taking the stage for this awesome cause, especially because the event takes place in Calgary where I've always enjoyed the audiences. On top of that, bringing awareness to this often overlooked and under-diagnosed disease, and hosting the show with Brett who is known nationwide for his philanthropy, makes this a pretty great gig. I can't wait to bring on the laughs!"
The LOVE HER runway show will feature celebrated Canadian fashion designer Judith & Charles' Spring 2013 collection, accompanied by the latest trends in footwear from world-renowned luxury brand Stuart Weitzman.
