Over the past 25 years, both the Qualicum Rotary Club and the Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce have provided the community with much-needed funds to assist in education, sports and culture and elevate the community image to welcome new residents and businesses. Additionally, the Qualicum Rotary Club regularly supports community agencies that provide assistance for those in the greatest need.

Proceeds of this very special gala will be directed to our community youth projects and education, as well as to the creation of new signage for Qualicum Beach.
