The 20th Anniversary of the Qualicum Beach Rotary/Chamber Gala Auction will be on Saturday, Nov. 12.
To celebrate this very special event, attendees will be entertained and dance to the music of ABRA Cadabra featuring Qualicum Beach’s very own Kylee Epp. ABRA Cadabra is back by popular request from the 2006 event.
“We are thrilled to welcome ABRA Cadabra back to help us celebrate our 20th anniversary and everyone attending will be having the times of their lives,” said Peter Doukakis, one of this year’s gala co-ordinators. “It is the perfect way to commemorate our 20th Anniversary of this wonderful community event.”
The 20th Annual Rotary/Chamber Gala Auction is the highlight of the year for the over 300 people attending. Funds raised at the event go to support initiatives and non profit groups right here in the local community. To date, the Qualicum Beach Rotary Club and the Qualicum Beach Chamber have distributed over $400,000.
“It is an honour to be a part of the team that puts this fantastic evening together,” Dukakis said. “The items that are starting to come in that will be part of the auction are amazing. We will have such a variety there will be something for everyone.”
Dukakis stressed that the chamber and Rotary could not make the magic happen by themselves.
“We could not make this happen without the support of the many businesses that donate items to the auction and the dedicated team of volunteers who work tirelessly to support this event,” he said.
Tickets for the Rotary/Chamber Gala Auction are on a first come first served basis and sell out quickly. The Qualicum Beach Chamber office is located at 124 West 2nd Avenue.
Anyone wishing to donate to the auction can contact the Chamber office at 250-752-0960.
