ABOUT THE NIGHT
Tradies are dobbed in, register and raise funds to walk the catwalk with a model at the main event.
With five Runway categories – Carpentry, Electrical, Masonry, Finishes and Plumbing – the top ten fundraisers in each Runway will earn the right to strut their stuff. An esteemed judging panel will choose the top two tradies from each Runway heat who will represent their trade in a Runway Grand Final. The overall winner will be named this year’s Steeltoes & Stilettos Model Tradie of the Year. With fabulous prizes up for grabs – you have to be in it to win it!
Tickets include a red-carpet entry to the event (complete with paparazzi and Perth-onalities) so be sure to come dressed in your best cocktail attire. Canapes and drinks will be served throughout the evening and a live band will have us all dancing the night away.
Jo Morris and Dale Alcock
Reflections' co-founder, Jo Morris, and ambassador, Dale Alcock, look forward to welcoming you to the red carpet.
Having both lost their fathers to Mesothelioma, Dale and Jo have used their influence and connections to share the important message of awareness in the hope of reducing the impact of asbestos on future generations.
“With the average age of first exposure for recorded mesothelioma sufferers being 23 years of age, awareness of the dangers of asbestos is essential to saving lives and reducing the ongoing impact,” says Jo.
