Love — the kind that leads to weddings and the kind that leads people to support charities — is all around at The Bay Bridal Extravaganza to benefit the Variety Club Radiothon, Thursday.

“Back in January, I said to my boss that I’d like to do a bridal show and I’ve been working on it ever since,” said Agnes Orsi, bridal registry consultant and show coordinator.

The show features men’s and women’s bridal and cruise wear fashions modeled by members of the KISS FM events crew with MC Denai Johnson.

There will be 17 wedding-related vendors, door prizes and a live auction by Paul Bielby with proceeds to the Variety Club.

The auction includes a wedding dress from L’Amoré Bridal & Formals in Kelowna, a suit from Milano Clothing Company, luggage from The Bay, a gift card from The Flight Centre, an engagement photo package from Wedded Bliss Photography and a package from the Prestige Inn.

Tickets for the show, at The Bay in the Village Green Mall, are a minimum donation of $5 per ticket with all sales to the Variety Club, and are available at the door.

Doors open at 5 p.m. Thursday, with the fashion show starting at 6:45 p.m. and the auction held during the show.
