A fundraising event called "In Her Shoes" takes the theme literally, providing plenty of amusement as five men — including Roughrider great Don Narcisse — donned skirts and high heels to support Sofia House in Regina.

"I'm real comfortable in what I have on," Narcisse said with a broad smile. "At the end of the day, it is for a fundraiser for Sofia House. This is what it's all about, helping out. I'll tell you what, I just want to go outside with this outfit."

Sofia House, a women's shelter, has been holding the event on an annual basis.

While the total amount raised this year was not immediately available Thursday, in the past, as much as $2,500 was donated to the charity.
