beer and wine. To pair with drinks we were pleased to offer passed appetizers, stationary trays, and delicious desserts. To en sure our guests were enjoying every moment, our live DJ kept a good vibe going throughout the evening!
We have received excellent feedback on the uniqueness of the concept. People loved our tiered prices and all ages’ aspect. We are so excited that our first event raised approximately $36,000!
We hope this event can start some momentum for others in Canada. If we all do our part, and work together, we can make a difference!
April 25 2013 was a magical night! Besides being beautiful and balmy, this spring evening saw history being made at the Vancouver Art Gallery: BANKING ON A CURE was the first ever FSHD fundraising event to be held in Vancouver! And given the huge success it was, it won’t be the last!
Over 250 guests paid to come to the event. We offered tiered ticket pricing to make it attractive to the younger people. Over 90 auction items were procured and fetched over $10,000 in revenue! We had 2 fabulous raffle items: an iPad 4 and a private plane trip, which raised close to $10,000! For entertainment we offered four Black Jack tables with professional dealers and play-money. The event featured a no-host bar, offering $5 cosmopolitan cocktails,
