Organizers are calling the second annual Domestic Diva Night a success after raising more than $1,000 for the Ann Davis Transition Society downtown on Friday night.

About 50 women showed up to be entertained at the Kim Mallory Photography studio on Yale Road.

“It was a very successful night, and we want to thank everyone involved,” said Michelle Cooper, co-owner of Diva Boutique and one of the event hosts.

Goddess Movement owner Aryn Savard demonstrated some gravity-defying moves for the crowd, and the night’s honouree, Cherol Cunningham, shared some of her powerful life story about surviving abuse at the hands of a family member.

Body painting, tarot readings and boutique shopping kept everyone amused.

The preliminary estimate of $1,000 raised from the big night doesn’t include revenues from the silent auction or bar, Cooper said.

“Cherol’s story reminded us why it’s important to support Ann Davis Transition Society,” she added. “We have chosen Ann Davis as our sole charity because of the great work they do to support entire families in Chilliwack, as well as women.”
