Go Hollywood for glam gala banquet

The Kelowna branch of SPCA is in the final planning stages for its largest signature fundraising event in Kelowna.

The Kelowna branch of SPCA is in the final planning stages for its largest signature fundraising event in Kelowna—the 4th annual Kelowna Gala. Presented by The Mortgage Group—Aquarius Mortgages Inc., it takes place Saturday, Nov. 5, at the Coast Capri Hotel.

There is an exciting evening planned including a VIP Reception featuring See Ya Later Ranch Brut, SPCA-certified appetizers and the smooth jazz sounds of Anna Jacyszyn and her trio. There will be a four-course meal paired with local Okanagan wines to follow. Wineries featured for dinner this year include Mission Hill Winery, Desert Hills Winery, CedarCreek Estate Winery and Quails’ Gate Estate Winery.

“We have moved our event this year to a larger venue as last year was very popular and we needed to be able to sell more tickets this year,” said Adams, regional development officer. We will be hosting 225 guests at the Coast Hotel and the evening will include silent and live auctions as well as dancing and live entertainment.”

The auction will prove to be exciting including some fabulous packages such as a Big White Ski Getaway, an all-inclusive weekend at the Free Rein Guest Ranch, tickets, dinner and accommodation in Vancouver to see our Vancouver Canucks take on the Detroit Red Wings, some wine from the cellar of Tom Budd and an opportunity to have celebrity chef Michael Lyon come to your home and cook for you and your friends.

For tickets or more information, contact the B.C. SPCA Kelowna branch at 250-861-7722.
