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 like to thank the following groups for their support:
Patagonia Victoria, Robinsons Outdoor Store, MEC, Lumina Yoga & Wellness, Land & Sea Apparel, Emma Glover Design, Expedition Old-Growth, Olive the Senses, Harmony Bellydance Co., Butchart Gardens, Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub, Pelican Products, WindBlossom Massage, Il Terrazzo Ristorante, Café Brio, Phillips Brewery, Ashtanga Yoga Victoria, Hemp & Co., Moksha Yoga Victoria, Heart and Hands Health Collective, Port Renfrew Marina and RV Park, Bahnman Timber, The Land Conservancy, LUSH Victoria, the UVic Ancient Forest Committee, Andrea Renee Whelan at Hawthorne Naturopathic Centre, and artists Paul Beique, Keuque Method and Logan Ford for your beautiful artwork. To the Market on Yates and Red Barn Market, the appetizer platters were amazing! Thank you Bon Macaron Patisserie for the popular dessert.
We would also like to send a special thanks to Oliver Swain for his fantastic live performance, as well as C-Frets, DJ Rich Nines and Taquito Jalepeno for donating their time to the turn-tables. A double thanks to Chris Fretwell and Social Coast for playing a key role in organizing the event! Your time spent planning, printing materials and promoting the event is appreciated.
Of course, THANK YOU so much to our incredible volunteers, supporters and AFA staff who without, we could not have pulled off such an enjoyable and successful evening.
We are so grateful for your support.
