This years proceeds will benefit the Canuck Place ‘Extending Our Reach’ campaign in support of their planned Abbotsford Children’s Hospice facility. The Abbotsford Canuck Place will be a $10 million facility, built on Marshall Road. This project is part of a unique cluster of three health facilities called a Campus of Care. Wine Festival proceeds will also go to Cyrus Centre, an inner city mission, where relationships are built with supportive volunteers and staff, to provide a safe and welcoming place for youth to get food, shelter, do laundry, have a shower, receive referrals, advocacy and exit the streets.
Tickets for this awesome fundraiser are $30 per person and are now available through Darry Taylor 604-854-3328, Carlson Wagonlit Travel 604-853-9111, and Abbotsford-Matsqui Rotary members.
