‘La Dolce Vita’ benefits LIFE

On Saturday, Oct. 29, the LIFE Recovery Association is hosting its fifth annual fundraising gala.

On Saturday, Oct. 29, the LIFE Recovery Association is hosting its fifth annual fundraising gala. The event, at the Ramada Plaza & Conference Centre in Abbotsford, will feature exquisite Italian dinner prepared by the award winning Ramada Chefs, including five fantastic chef-attended food stations.

Guests, who must be dressed in black and white attire, will have the opportunity to take part in the silent and live auctions, including a Harley Davidson Motorcycle, and dance the night away with live entertainment by the Vancouver based Dr. Strangelove Band.

Sponsors of the event include Envision Financial, Fictorie Construction Management Ltd., Mutual Fire Insurance, The Abbotsford News and Nova Cabinets.

All auction proceeds will benefit the LIFE Recovery programs which provide rehabilitation for women bound by substance addictions. The recovery home has 18 beds where professional staffs are scheduled 24 hours a day and seven days per week to oversee the client’s recovery from addiction.

For many women, the program takes 90-120 days to complete. The program uses the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) program together with other life skill building programs.

“Like peeling an onion, we find that many tears are shed as deeper levels are uncovered during the recovery process,” said Patricia Watson, executive director.  “The ministry has been operating since 1999. During that time hundreds of women have graduated and returned to their families and communities to live in freedom.”

Anyone interested in entering a silent or live auction item or purchasing a ticket to the event should contact Patricia Driessen, 604-556-1031. Tickets are $150 per person (donation receipts issued for $100).
