A trip back to an opulent era awaits you at the Comox Valley Hospice Society’s 28th anniversary gala auction Nov. 5 at the Florence Filberg Centre.

The fundraising extravaganza presented by hospice volunteers is themed Putting On the Ritz and features an eclectic array of donated products and services.

Prepare to be entertained as auctioneer Dave Stevens creatively urges lucky bargain hunters to bid on exciting live auction items that include a trip for two to Las Vegas, gourmet dining experiences and a unique float plane trip to a woodland cabin in the middle of a lake. There will be plenty of silent auction items to tempt you as well.

Also as a part of the evening’s enjoyment, you will dine on exquisite culinary delights from of the Top of the Ritz. In addition to great food and the exciting bustle of evening auction bargain hunting, there will be plenty of opportunity to test your luck with exciting games of chance featuring several fabulous prizes.

There’s still time to support hospice through the donation of an auction item or as a table sponsor for the event. This annual event is a great way to invest in the community while enjoying a night out with friends.

Past events have been sold out so come on down to see what all the fun is about. Remember, 100 per cent of your donation remains right here in the Comox Valley to help our friends and family members dealing with life-limiting illness live each day to the fullest.

Putting on the Ritz opens Nov. 5 at the Florence Filberg Centre at 7 p.m. Tickets are $75 and available by calling the CVHS office at 250-339-5533.
