The North Surrey Rotary and Lions Club make it easy and fun to support our local community and make a difference with two fantastic nights out in April.
April 29th, the Compass Point Inn is hosting the North Surrey Lions Club’s annual reverse-draw dinner and silent auction. Along with the Baron of Beef buffet, the $60 ticket may win a free dinner if it’s one of every 10th ticket pulled from the barrel, with the last ticket winning $1000.
Every year, the Lions pick a different organization to support. The largest portion of this year’s proceeds will go to North Surrey’s Centre for Childhood Development, with amounts going to the Surrey Memorial Hospitals “Mile of Toonies” fund and the Japanese Tsunami Relief.
“Last year we purchased a $5,000 Airpack for the local firefighters that assists breathing in fire victims and reduces recovery dramatically,” says club president, John Moralek. “We are very proud to know what a difference that gift made.”
On April 30th, Central City Shopping Centre will be transformed into an uptown hotspot for The Surrey Rotary Wine and Food Celebration, for an intimate evening of the best of local vintners, brewers, and restaurants.
For the $40 fee, guests can indulge in offerings from over 20 wineries and breweries along with delicious delicacies, as they mix and mingle. To compliment the evening there will be live musical entertainment and a silent auction, along with a glamorous ‘roaming’ fashion show featuring stylish evening wear, hairstyles, and makeup from Central City retailers. Free return-home taxis will be provided to Surrey residents.
“We are thrilled to support the community with this wonderful event,” says Vivian Li, Central City Marketing Coordinator.
