Spanish tapas at Sea Cider in Central Saanich

An evening of global fusion supporting the Victoria Therapeutic Riding Association from Camosun College students.

Camosun College Hospitality Management students host a fundraiser for the Victoria Theraputic Riding Association in December.

An evening of global fusion supporting the Victoria Therapeutic Riding Association is slated for next week at Sea Cider cider house in Central Saanich.

The event, scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 4, will mix Spanish flair with local food and cider from Sea Cider.

The night is being organized by Camosun College’s Hospitality Management students and will feature locally sourced Spanish-inspired tapas created and produced by the students themselves.

“This event aims to raise awareness for the Victoria Therapeutic Riding Association for the second year in a row,” said Sarah Worrall, a student from the program.

“Last year’s event allowed students to demonstrate their talents and experience gained from the program and raise money for the non-profit organization to help it continue providing the therapeutic horseback riding program for children and adults with disabilities.”

Throughout the evening, a silent auction will showcase some of the outstanding products and services from the Saanich Peninsula and Victoria and a salsa dance performance by Sabor Asi Dance Company will also entertain guests.

The evening of tapas, cider and culture takes place Wednesday, Dec. 4 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 and are available at Tanner’s Books, the Victoria Therapeutic Riding Association and the Dunlop House Restaurant.
