Tenor Ken Lavigne will supply the entertainment for A Night of White.

A Night of White will be divine

Unique fundraiser for the Vancouver Island Mountain Sports Society

Do you have a beautiful white dress or white linen suit hanging in your closet just waiting for the perfect occasion?

If so, this is your chance to attend one of the most glamorous parties the Comox Valley has seen to date.

On Aug. 27, at a surprise location to be announced the day before, you will find yourself walking into a beautiful setting in your finest whites.  As you enter, amidst the beautiful surroundings, you will see white tables, chairs and lights. You will hear music and you will see etiquette and charm at its finest.

At the same time you will be supporting the Vancouver Island Mountain Sports Society (VIMSS), who have been funding emerging Vancouver Island mountain sport athletes since 2004, and operating the Vancouver Island Mountain Centre, a multi-sport recreational facility on Mount Washington, since 2011.

‘Night of White’ guests are asked to bring their own gourmet picnic (think three courses) and a white floral arrangement. Once picnics and flowers are arranged at your table, the judging will commence.  You will be entertained during dinner with some light jazz prior to a special guest performance by none other than the travelling tenor, Mr. Ken Lavigne.  Ken will charm you with classical hits and popular songs.   Refreshing beer and wine will be sold on site and glasses will be provided.

Spectacular prizes will be awarded for “Best dressed”, “Most beautiful floral arrangement”, “Best gourmet picnic”, “Most charming etiquette” and more. VIMSS has also created some exciting fundraising opportunities for you to participate in: “Buy a song from Ken Lavigne”, “Guess the balloon, win a prize”, “Donate for candy” and more.

Visit the website www.nightofwhite.ca for up to date information and for tickets.  This is an adult only event and tickets are $50.  If you book a group of six or more, you will receive a chilled bottle of prosecco ready to drink. Support the Vancouver Island Mountain Sports Centre by attending this glamorous affair.  This is an event not to be missed!
