The Campbell River Community Foundation will hold its second Annual Gala Dinner & Vacation Draw will be held on Saturday, Oct. 24 at the Dolphins Resort.
The event, which features a reverse-draw of 10 unique vacation getaways, was a huge success last year, raising over $10,000 for the Community Foundation. This year’s grand prize will be an all-inclusive week for two to the beautiful Riu Palace in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
“We wanted to create a fundraising event that people could get excited about,” explains Gala Committee Chair Amanda Raleigh. And this is exactly that. The unique reverse-draw structure works by removing ticket holders’ names from the draw as the evening unfolds. Ticket holders are then given opportunities to re-enter the running throughout the night for higher odds…but at a higher price! “It was incredible seeing the enthusiasm from everyone last year and we could not be more thrilled to run this event again,” says Raleigh.
The Foundation is actively looking for community sponsors interested in supporting the event, either through vacation sponsorships, donation of travel points or cash in-kind. 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 like Sightseeing for Seniors through the Adult Care Society, What’s Next 707 through the Head Injury Support Society, Explorer Lab development through the Discovery Passage SeaLife Society, and many more.For ticket and sponsorship information, visit www.crfoundatioo.ca/events.
