Upcoming Navigate trivia night a fundraiser for Bacaanda foundation

Navigate is hosting a trivia night fundraiser on the night of Friday, Nov. 3, at Tsolum School from 6:30 to 9.

There will be trivia with some twists, a silent auction with some great items up for bid, and beer, wine and cider (this is a 19+ event). The money raised will go to the Bacaanda Foundation.

Established in 2008, the Bacaanda Foundation is a non-profit organization serving people of need in rural Mexico. Its mission is to alleviate the effects of poverty through community, education and child health initiatives.

Through the Bacaanda Foundation, Navigate School has been paired with a “sister school” in the rural Mexican community of El Granadillo, Oaxaca.

Navigate’s fundraising efforts have helped to build a concrete outdoor soccer/basketball court by the elementary school. Many rural Mexican communities have these facilities, which become an important gathering place for community events. Fundraising efforts are now focused on providing a roof and lights for the court, so that they can be used after dark, during the intense summer heat, and during the rainy season.

The Navigate Trivia Night is open to the public – tickets are $12 per person, or book a table of 8 for $85. Silent auction donations from Crown Isle, the BC Lions, Beaufort Winery, Mt. Washington, Serious Coffee, some beautiful art work, and much more will be available for bidding. Contact Stacey at navigatesecretary@gmail.com to book a table, or tickets will be available at the door.
