Fall Frolic and Raffle 2023

Thanks to the generosity of our donors and the community’s interest, the Fall Frolic and Raffle collectively raised $8,145 for seniors’ housing on Texada in 2023! Given the numerous items for auction on Facebook before Christmas, we are extending the excitement into spring with a live event – High Tea & Auction. titled — focusing on “Art, Activities, and Accommodations.” We are honoured to showcase original pieces from local artists and generous donations from on and off the island. The activities up for auction range from fishing charters, eco tours, clothing, camping gear to fantastic dining experiences. Accommodations will span from budget-friendly to high-end options. Stay tuned for more information in the upcoming months, and be sure to check back with us!

Winners of the Raffle draw were: 3rd prize for BC Ferries Passes – J. Armstrong, 2nd prize for $500 of Texada groceries ($250 from both the Gillies Bay General Store and Texada Market) –  D. McClelland, and 1st prize for the Daniel Smith Ltd Edition print – S. Russell, who has graciously donated the print back to further fundraising efforts. Thank you!

A special thank you goes out to Karen May and the Sagittarius party for their support in raising and contributing $877 to the TINSHS Capital Campaign. Karen’s dedication and selflessness in service to the Texada community will be dearly missed and fondly remembered.
