Annual Dinner Dance - Diamond Jubilee A Memorable Night!
We kicked off the holiday season with our Annual Dinner Dance and
Silent Auction. This event was sold out in the first week. As part of our
60th Anniversary celebration, the theme for this event was Diamond
Jubilee Gala. With close to 300 people, 200 auction items and the raffling
of 5 pieces of diamond Jewellery it truly was a night to remember…..O yes,
lets not forget the Rock Star Booth (Thank you Peter Papp and the Three
Amigos); Frank Krahn – Piano; Carol Farrar, Harpist, provided us with
some great pre-dinner music, and “Introduction” rocked the night away.
We were joined by many dignitaries, friends and community members.
were able to raise over $12 000.00!
There are a lot of people who helped make this event the success it was.
