The Delta Community Foundation is excited to host its inaugural fundraising gala at the new Cascades Casino in Delta on Feb. 11.
The Give from the Heart Gala will be an uplifting evening filled with great food, entertainment, friends, and heart-warming stories from charities who have received grants through the Delta Community Foundation.
Funds raised bring the Foundation closer to their goal of growing the Community Support Fund, enabling them to support charities in Delta, and respond to urgent needs across the community. Attendees will find a unique selection of live and silent auction items that will be exclusive to this event. Every ticket and winning bid will directly support the efforts of the foundation.
“The ‘Give from the Heart Gala’ is a celebration. We would like to celebrate the future of the Delta Community Foundation, the people who have supported us, and demonstrate how important community foundations are to the vitality of a community,” said Gala chair Carlene Lewall. “We offer the unique ability to manage endowments that will benefit generations to come.”
For more than 35 years, the Delta Community Foundation has been the only charity that gives to all other charities in Delta. Since the launch of the Fund Building Campaign, the Foundation has raised close to $700K through the generosity of the community.
Donors have made it possible for the Foundation to fund initiatives, charities and non-profit organizations operating in sectors such as mental health, education, arts, culture and heritage, children and youth, environment, food security, Indigenous initiatives, neighborhoods, seniors and much more.
“We value the people of Delta and want to ensure sustainable funding is in place for generations to come. We look forward to welcoming the community out to this event,” added Lewall.
