On Saturday June 12th, we celebrated our 3rd annual Gala Gala Do Fundraising Dinner & Silent Auction in Burnaby, BC. This once a year event is organized by three of our incredible supporters, Fran Tanner, Joanne Dodge and Beth Connelly and grows and grows each year!
For the 3rd year in a row, we were amazed by the incredible menu prepared by Spencer and Andree, our volunteer chefs from the Twisted Fork Bistro in Vancouver. The Gala Gala Do is known for its incredible food and long list of fabulous silent auction items and thanks to our many volunteers and donors, we raised over $4500 towards the operation of our new Birth House in Uganda!
