Dining for Dollars

Chilliwack Community Services 21st Annual Gala Fundraiser

April 13

Released by Carol Smith, Chilliwack Community Services

 

lease join us for a delightful mix of food, drink, entertainment and music that reflects the diversity of Canada’s landscapes and its people. Canadians come in all shapes and sizes with an eclectic blend of passions and interests and heritage. This is the night to celebrate just how fortunate we are!

Proceeds from this annual fundraiser will go directly to the Early Years programs at Chilliwack Community Services, such as family literacy that encourages parent/child learning together, family resource centres that provide a safe environment for parents with young children to socialize and learn more about parenting/child development, and Better Beginnings that promotes the health of mother and child through pregnancy to six months after the baby is born.  

All our Early Years programs support the belief that learning during the ages of 0-6 sets the foundation for a child’s life, and ultimately for the future of Canada.

The theme this year is "Oh Canada!"

There are many ways you can help ensure the success of the event:

• Talk about it with your friends and colleagues, and on Facebook

• Buy a ticket(s) for you and your friends to attend

• Sponsor a part of the evening, eg. food, wine, music, entertainment

• Donate a door prize

• Donate to the silent auction

• Contribute to the Canadiana décor of the evening

Each year, the success of our spring gala dinner is attributed to the work and commitment of many.
