Bravo to Night of Wonders organizers

Dear editor,

I would like to give public acknowledgement and direct some words of appreciation to Liz Datoo and Joline Martin for their generous contribution to the homeless in the valley via Night of Wonders, a festive evening of East Indian food and dancing to benefit the Dawn to Dawn Action on Homelessness Society.

On Saturday night in the meeting room of the Comox Rotary Club at d’Esterre House, a sellout crowd enjoyed for the second year in a row a marvelous evening filled with exotic, spice-infused tastes, and visual and musical entertainments.  Liz and Joline are the driving force behind this fundraiser, and the Comox Rotary Club and all the event volunteers work tirelessly to make sure everyone who attends the dinner is well cared for.

I was there and certainly enjoyed myself in a good cause.

Last year’s event produced $10,000 to support the fight Dawn to Dawn wages against homelessness. The evening’s contribution this year will again provide Dawn to Dawn with significant support.

It is good and caring citizens like Liz, Joline and their volunteers who enrich a community, and the Comox Valley is the better for their presence among us.
