The Comox Valley Community Foundation annual Gala has earned the reputation as one of the most elegant and fun events of the year in the Comox Valley.

Gala organizers and the CVC Foundation board of directors have chosen to celebrate the rich and vibrant beauty of the Comox Valley by naming the event the Crimson & Gold Fall Gala.

“Like many other successful fundraising events, we felt it was time to establish an identity for our gala,” said RaeAnn Hartman, gala chair and member of the foundation’s board of directors.

“Inspired by the Valley’s vibrant colours during this season and knowing that our gala will always take place in October, ‘Crimson & Gold’ felt like a great fit for this year, and every year.”

In addition to enjoying a sumptuous meal and dancing the night away, gala goers have an opportunity to win a wide variety of prizes including Canucks tickets with round trip flights to Vancouver, a Mount Washington Ski Resort package, a bountiful basket of the Comox Valley’s harvest and the original Ed Brooks framed photograph, dubbed Paradise Meadows.

Brooks has been a photographer for 50 years.

Launching the Backdoor Gallery and Studio in 1975, Brooks’ images can be found in collections all over the world.

Landscape and wildlife photography is his primary focus, but he admits to photographing “anything and everything” that captures his eye.

Funds raised during the gala 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, enriching life in the Comox Valley.

The Comox Valley Community Foundation Crimson & Gold Fall Gala takes place Saturday, Oct. 18.
