THANK YOU to Everyone Who Helped Make Our Year-End Celebration a Success!

The Ancient Forest Alliance would like to send a major THANK YOU to everyone who helped make our Year-End Celebration on November 25th a great success! The night was filled with great energy, socializing, music, food, and dancing. More than 150 people filled the Victoria Event Centre to its capacity. Excitingly, we raised over $5000! A large portion of our proceeds resulted from the silent auction items that were generously donated by a variety of businesses and artists. We would also like Social Coast for helping to organize the event, Oliver Swain for his live performance, and C-Frets, DJ Rich Nines and Taquito Jalepeno for their time donated to the turn-tables. Without the support of everyone involved, we could not have pulled off such an enjoyable and successful evening. Thank you again.
