Fall is the season for changing leaves, transformation and Galas.
Gala events of which there are plenty, always go to support a worthwhile cause.
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is one of them
CF is a multi-organ disease primarily affecting the lungs and digestive system of children and young adults. Ultimately, most CF deaths are due to lung disease.
I always look forward to going to the Annual 65 Roses Gala because not only does it help fund research and clinical care here in BC and Canada but overall it’s a great evening with good food and a fun crowd where you get to dress up, mingle and dance.
This year we pay homage to the glitz and glamour of the roaring twenties and the Gatsby era. Flowing champagne, glamorous guests (of course) and stunning décor will set the stage for a fundraising event like no other.
If you live in Vancouver and would like to attend there are still some tickets available. Cost is $300 per person. You can purchase tickets online at www.65rosesgala.com or call 604.436.1158
Or you can send a cheque if you prefer. This is not my usual pattern to ask for cash donations but hey; it is such a good cause I decided to go ahead because I know many of you will and it will be extremely appreciated.
There is no cure, but there is hope!
Help us breathe hope into a world with NO cystic fibrosis. Then we can all breathe easier.
This was from an event last week at the Vancouver Holt Renfrew – an evening in support of CF. All the Holts across Canada gave a portion of any shopping proceeds from the evening to CF. I’m with my friend Colleen (who has CF and received a Heart/double Lung transplant 27 years ago – her surgeon was knighted) acting a bit goofy in a somewhat animated photo booth set up in the store. So it was fun to have a
another good reason to shop.
So thank you in advance for whatever you decide to do to help out. XO
