Chamber spring fundraiser right around the corner

Get in the Spirit of Spring gala event in Central Saanich this month and help support the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce.

Get in the Spirit of Spring gala event at Church and State winery in Central Saanich this month and help support the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce.

One of the Chamber’s biggest fundraisers of the year, Spirit of Spring takes place May 29 at the winery for the second year.

Chamber Executive Director Denny Warner says the venue is beautiful and the food at last year’s gala was outstanding, so they are glad to be returning to Church and State.

The evening features a silent auction and entertainment provided by singer Edie DuPont.

“It’s the Chamber’s biggest fundraiser,” Warner said. “It’s also a great networking and social event as well.”

Last year’s event raised around $10,000 in total for the Chamber’s ongoing activities and programs for its members. This year, the money raised will go towards networking events, groundskeeping at the re-opened Pat Bay Visitors’ Centre and more.

The Spirit of Spring gala was sold out last year and Warner says she thinks it’ll fill up again this month. For tickets and more event information, call 250-656-3616 or email
