Amica HELPING HANDS Announces An Evening of Great Fun for an Even Greater Cause
The Board of Directors and dedicated volunteers and supporters of Amica HELPING HANDS are very proud to announce that the not-for-profit organization’s fourth annual fund-raising dinner Gala 2012, will take place on Wednesday, November 7th, 2012 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver B.C.
Amica HELPING HANDS is a registered charity dedicated to delivering a better quality of life for less-fortunate seniors. Last year’s spectacular Gala 2011, raised over $136,000 for seniors living in poverty across Canada and this year’s organizers anticipate an even greater success. “Thanks to the outstanding contributions of our Gala guests and donors who have supported our past three annual events, we have been able to offer more seniors in need a helping hand”, said Colin Halliwell, Chair of Amica HELPING HANDS. “Sadly, more and more seniors each year are having to turn to local food banks, agencies and programs such as ours, but the good news is that through the generous donations and support such as we anticipate Gala 2012will once again ignite, we are able to help more seniors each year. Since Amica HELPING HANDS was registered in 2001, we have been able to donate over $1 million to Canadian seniors in need.” All monies raised from Gala 2012 and from a multitude of other fundraising events and activities that take place throughout the year at Amica Mature Lifestyles, Inc.’s 23 retirement residences across Canada, are donated to initiatives that directly support and assist marginalized seniors.
Last year’s Gala evening celebrated the music of the Beatles and this year’s theme promises to be even more nostalgic and fun. If you have never had the opportunity to bop the night away to the legendary vocals and guitar of Buddy Holly’s Peggy Sue or That’ll Be the Day to name just two of his famous songs, then you will love what we have planned for Gala 2012!
