One heck of a good party will be going on in Abbotsford Saturday night. The Crystal Gala is an event designed to raise funds to help promote and achieve breast health while also supporting Fraser Valley women and families who suffer the effects of breast cancer.
The gala is sold out, but the Crystal Gala Foundation is selling ties tied to this yearâ€™s gala theme of Prohibition and is inviting supporters to â€œtie one onâ€.
The 1920s style pink with black strip ties are available through Champagne & Lace in Abbotsford or by emailing email@example.com. Funds from the minimum $20 donation per tie go to the foundation.
Once that tie has arrived, take a selfie of â€œtying it onâ€ and upload it to www.crystalgala.ca/tie-one-on for a chance to win an iPad.
Trinity Western Universityâ€™s School of the Arts, Media + Culture presents The Illusion, a 17th century play about the conflicts of fathers and children.
Running from Oct. 21 to Nov. 1 at Freedom Hall on the TWU campus, this is a magical tale of one man longing to be reunited with his son. He turns to a mysterious illusionist and sees the imagery of his son Calisto making his way in the world.
â€œThis show is somewhere between The Princess Bride and Pirates of the Caribbean,â€ said actor Bryan Sandberg, who plays a laughable lunatic.
Langley resident Kate Muchmore makes her directorial debut.
â€œLove is so complicated, yet so simple,â€ said Muchmore. â€œThe playwright does a marvellous job of illustrating the many faces of love, pushing us to question the obvious and accept the ambiguous. And he does this by telling a beautiful fairy tale about family and forgiveness. Itâ€™s magical!â€
