Langley agency hosts wine tasting fundraiser Friday evening

Only a few tickets are remaining for Cheers for Charity.

The organizers of Friday evening’s Cheers for Charity are down to the last few tickets.

Capacity is 220 and with few tickets remaining, the event promises to be one of the biggest the Langley Child Development has hosted.

Funds from the 13th annual event are earmarked.

“The money raised from this event will help refurbish our playground,” explained Cora Boeker, the supervisor of the Langley Infant Development Program with the LCDC. “It’s over 12 years old.”

The centre is working to finalize plans and choose a supplier with the estimated project cost at about $40,000. Organizers hope the tasting event will raise about $25,000.

The evening features wine, beer and liqueur tastings, treats, live and silent auctions, prizes and more. A guest speaker will share her experiences with the child development centre.

Tickets are $60 and available through eventbrite.ca. The event takes place at the Redwoods Golf Course on Friday, April 27 starting at 7 p.m. The dress code is business casual.
