Get ready to dress up and go for a cruise during the Cowichan Lake District Chamber of Commerce 10th annual Spring Fling on Saturday, April 28.
Once again, this will be an great opportunity for Cowichan Lake folks to get out and have a fun evening and support the chamber during their major fundraiser.
This year, there will be a dinner buffet served up by Jodi and Arlene of Cowichan Lake Recreation, a silent auction, and a not so silent auction with our own Jeff Abbott as the emcee. Beverly McKeen and Friends Ron Ingram and Brian Griffith will provide the evening’s entertainment.
The 2012/13 Lady of the Lake candidates and the reigning ambassadors will be in attendance as well. The event kicks off at 6 p.m. when doors open for cocktails with the buffet dinner beginning at 7 p.m.
The new president of the Chamber of Commerce, Rita Dustow, suggests you get your tickets soon as they are going quickly. Ron McKenzie, program and event director for the chamber invites everyone to come out for fun evening, “This year’s entertainment is a lot of fun and very entertaining,” he says. He also reminds everyone that they are accepting donations for the auction, and that receipts can be issued for any items that are donated to this event.
Money raised from the Spring Fling is used for many community events during the year such as Lady of the Lake ambassadors, Heritage Days events, the Christmas Light-Up contest, Santa’s visit to the communities around the lake and many more sponsored events during the year.
The Nichole Stock Community Service Award and the Citizen of the Year award are also chamber events. The money raised is also used to operate the open year-round Visitor/Business Centre in conjunction with Areas F and I and The Town of Lake Cowichan.
The Spring Fling will take place at Upper Centennial Hall and tickets for the event are only $35 per person.
