Night under the big top benefits autism

Dozens attended fundraiser at Morgan Crossing on June 13

Dozens of Peninsula residents enjoyed A Night Under The Big Top to support autism earlier this month.

Hosted by the Surrey-based Harmony House Centre for Autism Research and Educations Society (CARES), the circus-themed event featured appetizers created by chef Sean Bone, a wine raffle, silent and live auctions and performances by Juno-award winner Campbell Ryga.

The June 13 event raised more than $10,000 in donations for Harmony House, with donations still coming in days afterwards.

Funds from the event will benefit B.C. families who rely on Harmony House for services and support.
