Quality time for fathers and daughters at Butterfly Ball

Fundraising father/daughter ball at Crown Isle

A special fundraising father/daughter ball is being planned for the Comox Valley.

Girls in gowns, dance lessons with dads, and a decadent dessert buffet — these are just a few of the surprises in store for those attending The Butterfly Ball, a new event coming to the Comox Valley, presented by Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island.

Set for June 20 at Crown Isle Resort, this enchanting evening (4:30-9:30 p.m.) includes a dinner, dance, and entertainment that celebrates and strengthens the special relationship between fathers and daughters.

The event also provides an opportunity for parents to talk to their children about philanthropy — funds raised at The Butterfly Ball Comox Valley will support Jeneece Place, the home away from home for families travelling to Victoria for their child’s medical care.

“Since Jeneece Place opened in January 2012, over 730 families have stayed at the house,” says Linda Hughes, president and CEO of Children’s Health Foundation. “Around 94 per cent of those families have come from the Island and Gulf Islands, including 60 families from the Comox Valley. The Butterfly Ball Comox Valley will be a wonderful opportunity to support families from the central and north Island who must travel to Victoria for medical care.”

The Butterfly Ball Comox Valley will be modelled after the successful event of the same name in Victoria, which is now in its seventh year.

Tickets for the event are $225 per father/daughter couple.
