The Campbell River Community Foundation is pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Gala Dinner & Vacation Draw will be held on Saturday, Oct. 15 at the Maritime Heritage Centre.
The event, which features a reverse-draw of 10 unique vacation getaways, has been a huge success over the past two years, raising over $20,000 for the Community Foundation. This year’s grand prize will be a trip for 2 to anywhere WestJet flies.
“We’ve had so many people reach out for this event already,” says the Foundation’s Vice Chair, Amanda Raleigh. “It’s amazing to see the community getting excited about this, and we are so grateful for the support,” says Raleigh. Local businesses have been quick to sponsor the vacation prizes in their names with destinations like Mazatlan, Mexico and Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba, to name a few.
The Foundation is selling tickets in person and online, and expects this event to sell out soon. Proceeds from the Gala go directly back to the residents of Campbell River through the Foundation’s community grants, which support a wide range of local organizations and projects.
Noteworthy projects of the 2016 grant recipients include a Social Rehab Program through the CR Alana Club, Operation Transportation through the Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island Society, a Sub-tidal Biodiversity Project through the Friends of Cortes Island Society, and many more.
