A trip back to an opulent era awaits you at the Comox Valley Hospice Society’s 29th anniversary Gala Auction on Nov. 3 at the Florence Filberg Centre.

The fundraising extravaganza presented by hospice volunteers is themed An Evening in Venice and features an eclectic array of donated products and services.

Prepare to be entertained as Master of Ceremonies Kent Roduck begins the festivities and auctioneer Dave Stevens creatively urges lucky bargain hunters to bid on exciting live auction items that include exciting travel packages, gourmet dining experiences and unique local adventures.

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 straight from the shores of Italy.

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.

An Evening in Venice opens at the Florence Filberg Centre at 7 p.m. Tickets are $75 and available by calling the CVHS office at 250-339-5533.
