2017 Champagne Dinner & Auction at Shawnigan Lake School Saturday, April 22, 2017
The Champagne Dinner & Auction gala has grown to be the Cowichan Valley’s premier fundraising event. Nearly 400 guests bid through silent and live auctions during a fun filled evening. Each year we receive fantastic donations of vacation and weekend getaways, dining and theatre excursions, golf packages, artwork, collectibles, jewelry, cash and many other diverse items!
Since the galas inception in 1989 it has remained the Foundation’s major fundraising event. Our 2017 event raised $160,000 net. The funds raised in 2017 were dedicated to purchasing three new surgical tables with specialized attachments, the palliative family room at Cowichan District Hospital and 20% of the funds raised are dedicated towards the new hospital building fund.
Thank you to all of our dinner sponsors and key supporters!
Supporters are recognized at the event, a newspaper article following the event, and throughout the year on our Donor Board in the Emergency and Day Surgery Waiting Room at CDH.
