Il Centro Fundraising Gala 2017

Posted .

  • September 30, 2017
    6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

This year Il Centro celebrates its 40th anniversary of being an Italian Cultural Community Centre in Vancouver as well as an anchor within the Community at large. At this year’s gala we are focusing on a central theme that made the centre what it is today: “Respect the Past, Engage the Present, Build the Future.”

As a community-based charity “Il Centro” depends on the support of the community to fulfill its mandate: “to promote Italian Culture, Language and Heritage and share these values with other communities.” The funds raised during this gala will be used to enhance Il Centro’s cultural and language programs.

Doors open at 6:00pm, dinner program starts at 7:00pm. Tickets are $100.*

Live entertainment by the Cory Weeds Quartet will be showcased throughout the evening.

It will most definitely be a night to remember.
