It’s all aboard the Titanic for the Creston-Kootenay Foundation’s second annual grand soiree. There’ll be no ice in sight except in beverage glasses, but otherwise the event, being staged in partnership with the Friends of the Community Greenhouse, will be reminiscent of a first-class evening on the famous luxury liner in every conceivable way.
That’s one of the reasons the affair is being billed as A Night to Remember. But there are others, because every effort is being made to ensure that it will truly be a night to enjoy.
Of course there will be a meal to die for, and dancing to the rhythms of the Creston Community Band. There will also be entertainment, including vocalist Louise n’ha Ruby, monologist Kelly Mehrer and a cotillion dance by a 16-strong group of performers led by Christine Miller.
As was the case last year, there will be a silent auction with fabulous items donated by local businesses to bid on. Heading the list will be a one-week stay at a three-bedroom home in Arizona and a $500 travel voucher, an heirloom quilt, diamond earrings and more.
Hors d’oeuvres will be served at 5 p.m. and the dinner buffet will open at 6 p.m. Salad and dessert will be served at the tables.
Boarding passes for the event are $50 per passenger, available at Black Bear Books or by calling Heather Suttie at 250-428-7784.
