Promoting safety at soiree

Red Serge Reception set to take place Sept. 15

Organizers behind this year’s Red Serge Reception & Auction are touting the gala as an evening of fun and fundraising in an intimate atmosphere.

The soiree – a fundraiser for community policing programs in South Surrey and White Rock – is to take place Sept. 15 at Belle’s on 32nd (14007 32 Ave.).

“We want to raise money in a fun and intimate atmosphere… really feel like people are taken care of,” said Steve Christian, chair of the Semiahmoo Volunteer Community Police Society.

The evening, which has raised more than $500,000 over the years, is to feature live and silent auctions. Items up for grabs in the live auction will include Kelowna and Whistler getaway packages and a Vancouver Canucks suite.

A popular item introduced last year, in which two children get the chance to be police officers for a day, will also be auctioned.

Christian said while the event is a fundraiser, it’s not all about money. It’s also aimed at raising awareness of the society and community policing programs.

As a father of young children, Christian, 39, knows the value of getting involved.

“Our slogan is ‘Promoting a Safer Peninsula’ – for me, that’s what it is.”
