It’s a ‘50s affair for PdA gala
It’s time to pull out those polka-dotted pencil skirts, pillbox hats and pleated trousers.
On Saturday, Oct. 19, Place des Arts will host its annual gala fundraiser, transforming the Coquitlam arts hub into a 1950s television studio.
Guests of Impromptu: Live! On Air will mingle with cocktails and canapes in hand while enjoying the interactive entertainment.
And there will be plenty of prizes to win.
For tickets, call 604-664-1636 (ext. 0) or visit the Maillardville facility at 1120 Brunette Ave.
