Chilliwack gala to offer an evening in Bollywood

August 6, 2018 by  

A Chilliwack gala will be bringing a taste of Bollywood to the city, and while the guests enjoy the evening of elegance, they will be helping to support a local not-for-profit group.

The Chilliwack Hospice Society has organized the fundraiser to help raise funds to meet the expanse of the programming it offers to the community. The doors will be open at 6:00 pm, and the dinner itself will begin at 7:00 pm.

This will be the 15th year that the group has held its fundraising gala, and it will include Bollywood-themed food, music, dancing, and other activities. Performances of sitar music and Indian-style ballet are on the agenda for the occasion, as is a Bhangra Dance. A chaia tea station will be set up, and a buffet with both Indian and Canadian dishes will be on offer, as will the ‘dessert dash’. Both live and silent auctions will be held, and there will be lots of opportunities for the guests to socialize and have a great time.

The monies raised through this function will be used by the Hospice Society to fund its various visiting teams, respite care and other programming and also its support groups. A printing services provider can be called upon to design and produce large-sized themed decorations for this type of event.

The ‘Celebrating Bollywood’ gala will be taking place on September 23 in the Landing Sports Centre. Tickets start at $150 each.
