Seniors are invited to a spring gala

We Care

We Care Home Health Services is inviting the senior community to attend a 2011 Spring Gala Celebration Dinner and Dance, on Wednesday at 5 p.m. at the Schubert Centre.

“The event is to showcase our appreciation to the senior community,” said Holly Malfair, owner of We Care.

The event is $10 per ticket to seniors (65+). People interested in attending should purchase their tickets at the Schubert Centre.

“The last event sold out in less than 24 hours. There will be a wonderful roast beef dinner served, entertainment, prizes, exciting displays, and more,” said Malfair.

We Care is proud to be a part of the Greater Vernon and surrounding area and this is their way of giving back.

“Our last event was a huge success, and everyone was asking when our next event will be,” she said. “We listened to you, and now it’s happening. We are honoured to have Brian Martin from Sun FM be our guest host and MC for the evening, and we also have Cheek to Cheek dance studio presenting a wonderful dance demonstration. Cheek to Cheek will also help us learn a few moves on the dance floor.”

We Care is excited to announce many community events throughout the year, everything from luncheons, wine and cheese receptions, wellness fairs, to picnics in the park, events they are able to offer thanks to their new partnerships with other local businesses. Businesses that have generously contributed to the Spring Gala Dinner and Dance are VantageOne Credit Union, Canderm, BCAA, Canadian Hearing, Coldstream Meadows, Driving Miss Daisy, Remax – Sandra Bradley, Sun FM, Cheek to Cheek Dance Studios, Maureen Vincent with Mary Kay and more.
