Fun awaits at gala auction

The Comox Valley Hospice Society’s 30th anniversary gala auction is Nov. 30 at the Florence Filberg Centre.

THE COMOX VALLEY Hospice Society is planning A Winter Wonderland-themed gala auction for Nov. 30.

A fun-filled evening awaits guests at the Comox Valley Hospice Society’s 30th anniversary gala auction Nov. 30 at the Florence Filberg Centre.

The fundraising extravaganza presented by hospice volunteers this year is themed Winter Wonderland and features an eclectic array of donated products and services to be auctioned.

Prepare to be entertained as Master of Ceremonies Kent Roduck begins the festivities and auctioneer Dave Stevens creatively urges serious bargain hunters to bid on 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.

As part of the evening’s enjoyment, you will dine on a cornucopia of delectable appetizers that will dazzle your palate. In addition to fantastic food and the excitement created by avid bidders, there’s plenty of opportunity to test your luck and compete in 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 memorable 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 to live each day to the fullest.

A Winter Wonderland opens Nov. 30 at the Florence Filberg Centre at 7 p.m. Tickets are available by calling the CVHS office at 250-339-5533 or e-mail to admin@comoxhospice.com.
