CIBC Run for the Cure team, The Oak Bay Believers, is hosting Pink above the Rink, a fundraising gala with all proceeds going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
The event is being held in Oak Bay Recreation Centre’s Sports View Lounge with cocktails starting at 6:30 p.m. and a Greek buffet dinner beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 27.
There will be a large silent auction as well as door prizes. Some of the items up for auction include a six-person breakfast cooked by Oak Bay Firefighters; Chemainus hotel and show packages; Pandora jewelry; whale watching tours; restaurant gift certificates; children’s toys; Victoria Royals tickets and concert tickets.
The evening also includes two talented entertainers, Alison Roberts, a Canadian College of Performing Arts graduate who has a large musical theater background and Emily Coldwell, whose musical talents have been described as “indie/acoustic with a rock and roll heart.”
Two guest speakers include Laura Clarke from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Run for the Cure and Karen Wilson, an incredibly inspirational two-time breast cancer survivor.
Tickets are $20 and are available at Recreation Oak Bay, Henderson Recreation Center, and Monterey Centre until the end of today (Sept. 25).
