Sweetheart Banquet

& Silent Auction

You do not want to miss this year's Sweetheart Banquet! Couples, singles, families, friends - everyone is welcome to attend this "Alice In Wonderland" themed gourmet dining experience and silent auction. You can expect unique appetizers, savory entrees, decadent desserts, top-quality auction items, first class service and entertainment, even childcare!


The entire evening is run by our VERTIGO volunteers and Youth Missions Team as their primary fundraiser for the upcoming year's events. Funds raised will be used to support our Youth Missions Team in delivering a stellar summer camp experience for kids and teens in a remote community in Northern BC at no cost to the community. This year funds will also be used to ensure no students are left out of attending History Maker, an inspiring youth conference that will be held in Nanaimo for the first time ever this spring.


So... tickets are $25 each and can be purchased on Sunday mornings or during regular church office hours. Childcare tickets are $10 per child and includes their meal. Once you've got your tickets you can get ready to join us on Friday, February 15th at 6:00pm for appetizers. Dinner is served at 6:30pm.


But the fun doesn't stop there! If you'd like to find out more about how you can help with this event scroll down...



HOW CAN I HELP?

Glad you asked! There are two ways:


1. Donate auction items!

We are looking for donations of brand new or hand-crafted items, such as sports items, housewares, gift baskets, gift certificates, etc. To donate items please drop them off at the church office (Tuesdays to Fridays, 9:00am to 3:30pm).

Unfortunately we cannot accept used or older "new" items (ie. 20 year old, unopened wedding gifts, things that got lost in the abyss at the back of your closet, etc.).


2. Donate in lieu of a ticket!

If you are unable to attend the Sweetheart Banquet you can still give towards this amazing cause. A generous donor has agreed to match all donations in lieu of tickets up to $1000! Head over to the ticket sales table on a Sunday morning or call the church office to get in on this matching donation offer.
