Young Life celebrates 50th year

Christian youth outreach group in Greater Victoria celebrates milestone at Bear Mountain Westin Resort

Young Life of Victoria is turning 50 this year and has a celebration and reunion planned for anyone involved with the Christian youth outreach organization over the past half century.

The event happens Saturday, Nov. 5 at the Bear Mountain Westin Resort. Besides appetizers, the gathering includes a slideshow and various stations that will take attendees through the years, touching on events and the people and youth who have been involved.

Young Life operates clubs in four high schools in Greater Victoria, as well as doing outreach with at-risk youth and providing opportunities to attend its summer camp.

The anniversary gathering is not billed as a fundraiser – the annual Home Tour is the main revenue generator for Young Life. Tickets are $30 per person or $50 per couple and can still be purchased online at younglife.ca/victoria50 or by calling Bill Okell 250-479-8453.
