It may be a lone diamond, but what a diamond.
The diamond donated every year by Woodland Jewellers for the Diamond Dinner, Banquet and Auction fundraiser goes on to become part of the community’s generous collective consciousness.
The grand prize draw that comes with tickets to the fundraiser is a Canadian cut diamond and custom work donated by Woodland Jewellers and jewellery designer Geoff Bourdon.
The diamond is valued at $2,250, with custom work up to $1000 from Geoff Bourdon.
And funds raised by this diamond will join funds raised through the generous donation of auction items to help the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre and Women’s Contact Society provide valuable services to the community.
Some highlights of the auction items donated by local businesses include a fishing trip for four from Gustafson’s Dodge and Central Coast Adventures, a beautiful handmade quilt by Elaine Watt, and a trip for a week to a destination of your choice from Heartland Toyota.
Last year the event raised $27,120.
Proceeds from this year’s Diamond Dinner and Auction will help to support the Good Food Box Program operated by the Women’s Contact Society and the Cariboo Autism Centre operated by the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre.
The annual Diamond Dinner and Auction is coming up at Signal Point Event Centre – Pioneer Room on Saturday, Oct. 17. Tickets are $70 and available at Child Development Centre (250-392-4481) and Women’s Contact Society (250-392-4118).
