Foundation gala incorporates Bond theme

Tickets are available for the 18th annual Comox Valley Community Foundation Gala on Oct. 19 at the Native Sons Hall.

A JAMES BOND theme will permeate the Comox Valley Community Foundation Gala on Oct. 19.

Tickets are now available for the 18th annual Comox Valley Community Foundation Gala on Oct. 19 at the Native Sons Hall.

The 007 theme guarantees the evening will be “shaken, not stirred.” It’s a night of delicious food, great music, fabulous door prizes and … Bond — James Bond.

“The CVC Foundation Gala has the well-deserved reputation of being one of the most fun evenings of celebration in our community,” said RaeAnn Hartman, gala chair and a director of the Foundation. “This event also promotes the important work being done by the Foundation to enrich life in the Comox Valley.”

The annual gala is the Foundation’s single fundraising event of the year.Tickets are $100 and include the reception, dinner, and dance.

Proceeds are used to offset annual operation costs, allowing the Foundation to maximize funds dedicated to its Community Grants Program. The Comox Valley Community Foundation supports a wide range of charitable organizations that provide important services for the people of the region.

The CVCF is very pleased that Odlum Brown Limited is returning as the event sponsor for the next three years. “Having this kind of long-term commitment from a major sponsor is a wonderful gift,” said Hartman.

Odlum Brown has always had a keen interest in the community.  One of the firm’s founders, Tom Brown, was involved with the Vancouver Foundation and members of Odlum Brown continue that tradition today in the Comox Valley.

“We are very proud to uphold the values and beliefs of our founders by embracing the spirit of philanthropy,” said Janine Martin, branch manager, director and associate portfolio manager of Odlum Brown Limited. “Supporting the Comox Valley Community Foundation provides a wonderful opportunity to carry on the vision and traditions that are a part of Odlum Brown’s culture.”

CVC Foundation Gala organizers are thrilled to announce that MLA Don McRae has agreed to act as host/MC/Bond for the event. And with the outstanding support of all our sponsors Gala-goers will also have opportunities to win wonderful door prizes, and to test their Bond knowledge during the “All things Bond” trivia contest.

There are just over 200 tickets available — so Get Your Bond On and come to the Gala.
