Valentine's Day Masquerade fundraiser for Wish Come True Society
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than by going to the Valentine's Day Masquerade at Mission Hall on February 16th. What makes this dance special is it is a fundraiser for the Wish Come True Society. The concept was started in 2001 when Brad Krauza's family and friends decided to raise money for families of children with terminal illness. In 2012, it became the Wish Come True Society whose vision is to build a Respite Centre/Hospice House for Children in Kelowna. Today the society is made up of local business people including Brad Krauza, Angie Huber, Trish Eddy-Wright, Wendy Weller, Shaun Bos, and Calum Hughes.
Too many families suffer great financial hardship, having to quit jobs and incur huge expense traveling to Vancouver to Canuck Place for their child’s final stages of life. Having a Hospice House in Kelowna would allow children to pass with dignity, and be close to their loved ones. They could even be allowed to go home on a day pass and spend time in familiar surroundings with family, friends, pets, and favorite toys.
A big supporter of Wish Come True, Les Bellamy of Bellamy Homes, is sponsoring the pizza for the event on February 16th. Power 104.7 and Q Radio as well as The View Winery, SW-Audio, T-Rex Excavating and Haworth Jewellers have come on board as sponsors to make this event a success.
So come on out and dance the night away with music by the Young'uns. Doors open 8 p.m. and the dance goes until 1:00 a.m. Purchase a raffle ticket for a chance to win a prize donated by Haworth Jewellers, and there will be a 50/50 draw, as well. Tickets are $25 and available at wishcometruesociety.com and Westland Insurance on Lakeshore.
