A fundraising event new to the Semiahmoo Peninsula raised $10,000 for the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society earlier this month.
The Art of Living, held Oct. 1 at Victory Memorial Park, was described by organizers as a “classy affair” that was such a success, plans are already in the works for next year’s event.
“The Art of Living is going to prove itself the new premier fundraising event for the community to attend each year,” Beth Kish, executive director of the hospice society said in a news release.
Featuring a live art auction, as well as several valuable silent auction items, attendees also enjoyed wine, hors d’oeuvres and entertainment.
“An amazing time was had by all who attended,” Kish said.
