Join us for an amazing night of fundraising as we raise funds alongside the Semiahmoo Peninsula Rotaract club and the Fraser Valley Rotaract club for the Rotaract District 5050 international service trip to Guatemala in August 2019!

There will be a silent auction, toonie tosses, lottery board and so much more fun to be had. We hope to see a lot of local representation out to the event for such a great cause!

If you are interested in going please rsvp to jaymeetricitiesrotaraact@gmail.com. We will be accepting payment at the door by cash or card.

UPDATE:

What a magical night! The turnout for our gala was absolutely amazing and it was such a successful night! Congratulations to our winners of the toonie toss, lottery board, The $400 Calvin Klein watch won during our heads or tails game & all the bidders for our silent auction that got to go home with amazing prizes such as 2 club seats for a Canucks game, 4 BC Lions tickets, Cobs Bread for a year & so much more!

In total, we raised $2,000 for a medical clinic in Ndola, Zambia! Thank you to everyone who supported us – especially the Rotary Clubs of Port Coquitlam Centennial, Central City, Port Moody, and our friends from the District 5050 Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.

Members of our club spent the afternoon of Saturday, March 22 visiting with seniors at Hawthorne Centre in Port Coquitlam. In addition to serving tea and snacks, we also made them cards to ring in the spring season, and our very own Jessica entertained them by playing the violin. Thank you to Chris M., Kevin, Brianne and Rasmeet for also volunteering their time!

 

 

 

A Night with the Stars Benefit Concert

Vancouver-based band Pigeon Park were among the performers at our benefit concert to raise money for an orphanage in Uganda.

March 20, 2014 marked one of the largest events our club has held thus far! Our “A Night with the Stars” benefit concert, held at Inlet Theatre in Port Moody, was a fundraiser for Jaaja Barb’s Home of Angels Orphanage in Mpumudde, Uganda. The orphanage, started by B.C. native Barb Giraud, protects orphans living with HIV/AIDS in acute poverty.

The night featured plenty of local talent including acoustic singers, bands, and dance crews, and featured plenty of free food and prizes. In the end, we were able to raise $4,025.41 for Jaaja Barb’s Home of Angels! Thank you to all of our guests and sponsors who made the event our most successful one yet.
