Bubbly fundraiser at Marina

DFH Real Estate hosts the Bubbles and Bites gala fundraiser to honour those lost to cancer and fundraise for a cure

DFH Real Estate Ltd. plans “a bubbly reception” for a gala fundraiser to honour those lost to cancer and fundraise for a cure

“We have lots of tasty nibbles and sparkling bubbles and it’s just going to be a real nice evening,” said organizer Susan Dunn.

Bubbles and Bites … Popping Corks for the Cure honours DFH founder Dominic Francis Hanley who died in September 2014 after a short battle with cancer.

“The BC Cancer Foundation named DFH an ambassador because the founder of our company … made a very sizeable, generous donation,” Dunn said. “They in turn wanted to nominate someone from his association as ambassador. We’re absolutely delighted to hold this fundraiser in Dom’s memory.”

The Bubbles and Bites gala offers guests a variety of sparkling wines and savoury bites from the award-winning chefs of the Marina. The event will feature a live and silent auction and guests can use the memory ‘bubble wall’ to honour those lost to, or sick with, cancer.

“The intent is that people can come and buy a bubble and inside will be a prize, but what happens when they purchase the bubble is they can put a person’s name on this special bubble wall we’re making,” Dunn said.

The evening will also feature keynote speaker Dr. Julian Lum on behalf of the BC Cancer Foundation.

“We’re thrilled to have him, plus we have a personal note from one of our own realtors who is going to share a story,” Dunn said.

Funds raised will benefit local cancer research. “We’re focusing our [fundraising] efforts on immunotherapy,” Dunn said.

The gala is Sept. 24 from 7 to 10 p.m. at The Marina Restaurant. Visit bubblesandbites.ca for ticket details.
