Gogos gala at Richmond Curling Club
The Richmond Gogos are holding their fourth annual gala Nov. 7 at Richmond Curling Club.
This is the group's main fundraiser of the year, featuring a buffet dinner, live and silent auctions and the Gogo's marketplace.
The silent auction will offer a range of items, including a collectible twisted silver chain watch, a Gogos tote bag with travel accessories, a Coach wallet and Gateway Theatre tickets. The live auction will feature a golf lesson from Jennifer Wyatt, a hosted Italian dinner for four, a summer weekend in a Whistler townhouse for up to 11 people, a guided bird watching tour and an hour of music from a trio of award-winning musicians.
The event will also feature a marketplace, with handmade crafts and items from projects in Africa and Kazuri jewelry from Kenya.
All proceeds from the gala go to the Grandmothers' Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation. The Grandmothers' Campaign supports grassroots projects in 15 African countries. These projects provide grandmothers with necessities to ensure orphaned grandchildren are fed, go to school and receive health care.
The event takes place from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 7 at Richmond Curling Club, 5540 Hollybridge Way. Tickets, $40, available by calling 604-275-9526 or e-mailing email@example.com.
