There were just 20 tickets left Thursday for the Guys and Dolls fundraising gala to raise funds for student bursaries at TRU.

There were just 20 tickets left Thursday for the Guys and Dolls fundraising gala Saturday night to raise funds for student bursaries at TRU.

TRU’s marketing co-ordinator Myrissa Krenzler says that if there are any tickets left today people should pick them up by the end of the day, but if there are still any tickets left by tomorrow, she says arrangements can likely still be made for people to have them.

Event organizer Kerry Cook says the gala will be a great evening of great food, entertainment and dancing, but that what she is really impressed with is how generous the community has been in supporting TRU locally by donating some fantastic auction items for the auction.

“The community has really stepped up to the plate which is awesome to see,” Cook says.

In another fundraising venture tied to the Guys and Dolls theme, the TRU GRIT team organizing the gala, is also running a raffle for a trip to New York City.

The raffle tickets are $40 and there are only 350 of them, Krenzler says. The All-Ways Travel voucher has a value of $3,425. and includes air fare for two from Vancouver to New York, four nights at a four-star resort, and two tickets to a Broadway show.

The raffle tickets are available at TRU, Heartland Toyota, and Cariboo GM.
