Fundraisers tag teaming in Langley

It will be the first shared event between the Langley Hospice Society and the Langley Care Foundation. Preparations are being made for the Oct. 18 Silver Screen Gala.

Guests are invited to “come as they were” to Cascades Casino and Convention Centre for an old Hollywood styled event including dinner, live and silent auctions, and special entertainment.

It’s a costume party where guests are invited to dress up as old time stars and starlets to support the Langley Lodge and Langley Hospice Society.

“It’s been an amazing experience from the beginning, both the partnership between the two organizations and the response from volunteers when invited to be part of it,” said Shannon Todd Booth, interim acting Executive Director of the LHS.

With similar, yet non-competing goals, the idea of a combined event seemed like a natural fit, noted Terry Metcalfe, president of the Langley Care Society.

Funds raised will be evenly divided between both organizations.

“There is an opportunity to be more successful than either of us could do alone,” Metcalfe said. “For ourselves and the Langley Hospice Society, I believe this is an opportunity to reach new successes with the synergies of two charitable organizations working together to support the community they serve. We have a goal to raise $60,000 at this year’s gala fundraising event.”

Support from the community for the upcoming event has been excellent with sponsorship opportunities filling up fast.

There are still a number of great opportunities for any person or business wanting to support the event, according to organizers.
