Third Annual Gala Dinner & Vacation Draw announced for the Campbell River Community Foundation

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.
