A Night to Sparkle - Qualicum Beach Rotary Chamber Gala

A Night to Sparkle! How fitting a theme for the 25th Silver Anniversary of the annual Qualicum Beach Rotary Chamber Gala Auction. You are invited to put on your finery, your dancing shoes and prepare for an evening of fun and celebration. 

This Silver Anniversary Party, on Saturday, November 19th at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre, promises to be a very special celebration and includes a gourmet meal, live band and lots of sparkly items for both the live and silent auctions 

Over the past 25 years, both the Qualicum Rotary Club and the Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce have provided our community with much needed funds to assist in education, sports and culture and elevate the community image to welcome new residents and businesses. Additionally, the Qualicum Rotary Club regularly supports community agencies that provide assistance for those in the greatest need.

Proceeds of this very special Gala will be directed to our community youth projects and education, as well as to the creation of new signage for Qualicum Beach.

Join us in celebrating the Silver Anniversary of the Qualicum Beach Rotary Chamber Gala Auction. The celebration will not be the same without you! 

Still tickets available but call soon as they are going fast! 250-752-0960
