Nov. 19 is the 25th silver anniversary of the Qualicum Beach and Rotary Chamber Gala Auction.

People are invited to put on their finery and dancing shoes for an evening of fun and celebration. The event includes a gourmet meal, live band and lots of sparkly items for both the live and silent auction.

Tickets go on sale Aug. 15 at the Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce office (2711 W. Island Hwy.) Purchase a ticket before Sept. 15 and be entered to win the Fabulous and Fun Gala Limo Package for Six for arrival on the red carpet.

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.
