Coquitlam, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam

And that’s not all. There will be a silent auction with a barn-full of affordable goodies, and also a live auction featuring such choice items as a Whistler Dream Weekend, a Victoria Getaway, a $1000 Coquitlam Centre gift card and a MedRay Imaging gift certificate, also worth $1000. “It doesn’t get much better than that,” Toddington says. Especially if you’ve been wondering about that trick knee of yours.

But that’s not all. There’s also food. Your $50 ticket gets you a finger-lickin’ good chicken-and-ribs dinner and one lip-smackingly delicious liquid refreshment. Call 604.468.9598 or email info@coquitlamfoundation.com to reserve your place at the hoedown.

All proceeds will support the foundation’s operations and charitable endeavours. The foundation always welcomes donations to its foundation-directed and donor-advised funds.
