Coastal Sound Music Academy invites you to attend our 17th Annual Gala Dinner fundraiser. For 2012, guests will enjoy a lively evening of dinner, entertainment, dancing and auctions hosted by Global TV’s Deborah Hope. Throughout the evening wonderful musical entertainment is planned including The Sweetpea Swing Band and our own award-winning Coastal Sound Youth Choir.
For more than two decades, Coastal Sound Music Academy has been offering choral music programs for everyone from preschoolers to school-age children as well as youths and adults. We pride ourselves on delivering caring, collaborative and innovative vocal training focused on healthy vocal technique. Our mission is to enrich lives and communities with choral music.
Our ability to make our programs available to the community relies heavily on the generosity of individuals, corporations and government. As a not-for-profit organization, we raise funds to ensure that our programs are available to all those who want to sing, even if tuition payments are not possible for some. As such, we keep registration fees as low as possible and invest considerable time and effort in raising funds to support our programs and cover scholarships and bursaries for those in need. The Gala Dinner is our premier annual fundraising event to benefit Coastal Sound Music programs.
Please mark your calendar for Saturday, April 21, 2012 and plan to join us at the Vancouver Golf Club, 771 Austin Avenue in Coquitlam.
Time: Cocktails and appetizers 5:30 pm; Dinner 6:30 pm
Cost: $85.00 per person or a table of ten for $800.00. No host bar.
Dress: Dressy casual. The Vancouver Golf Club dress code prohibits denim. For more information see www.vancouvergolfclub.com/dress-code/
Theme: Retro 1940’s. Come dressed to dance the night away!
We look forward to your attendance and support of the event. Please secure your tickets by contacting Angela Crocker, Executive Director, at 604-552-2762 or by email at email@example.com.
