Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre would like to invite the community and all of its friends to participate in the first Fundraising Gala, on September 19 at 7:00pm. As community-based charity “Il Centro” depends on the support of the community to reach its mandate “to promote Italian Culture, Language and Heritage and share these values with other communities” and to ensure the Centre remains a culturally vibrant, community engaged and economically sustainable organization that connects and weaves Italian language, culture, and heritage into Vancouver's multicultural society.
We are also pleased to announce that every donation received during the Gala will be matched on a 1:1.20 basis, up to $50,000. That is, every dollar donated at the event will become $2.20. Our target for the evening is to raise $50,000, which will be more than doubled by the matching funds we have already secured for the event. These funds will be used to pay down our current mortgage debt.
Tickets are $85.
