Campbell Riverites dance the night away – for a good cause

Campbell Riverites came out en masse for the Campbell River Hospital Foundation’s annual dinner/dance this past weekend.

The sold out event at the Community Centre was attended by 375 people who enjoyed delicious food, live music and a great atmosphere. Community sponsors were present and the auction table was full. The music was provided by Ten Souljers and the audience was encouraged to come dressed as their favourite genre of music.

The evening raised over $35,000, all of which will stay right here in Campbell River. The Campbell River Hospital Foundation raises funds for lifesaving medical equipment and staff training to ensure quality healthcare, close to home.
