Building Fund Gala 2016


Thanks for your interest. The Gala is Sold Out 

Cowichan Women Against Violence (CWAV) Society is hosting our second Building Fund Gala on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at the Cowichan Golf and Country Club. The event features a gourmet buffet dinner (3 mains plus a vegetarian option by request), a live auction, a silent auction, special draws, and live music and dancing. Stormin' Norm Jackson will be our MC and auctioneer. The Cowichan Lake Tenors will provide the music.

Festivities start at 6 PM for cocktails (cash bar) and the opening of the silent auction and the purchase of tickets for several exciting draws. Dinner is at 7 PM, the live auction at 8 PM and music and dancing from 9 to 11. The silent auction closes at 10. Draws are made between 10 and 10:30.  Check out a "sneak peek" of some of our fabulous auction items here!

Individual tickets are $85 each. Each ticket will receive a tax receipt for $35. 

If you want to come with a group, tables are available for $680. You will get 9 seats for the price of 8. The tax receipt for a table is $280.

Tickets can be purchased on-line below or at our office at 103, 255 Ingram Street in Duncan, V9L 1P3. 

If you would like to donate a ticket so some of our clients can attend, you can send a cheque by mail or you can purchase tickets at our office at 103, 255 Ingram Street in Duncan, V9L 1P3. Office hours are M-F 9:30 to noon and 1 to 4. if you prefer to purchase the ticket you want to donate on-line, notify the office at 250-748-7000 or once you've purchased the ticket to let us know that it's for a client. Tickets donated to clients receive a tax receipt for the full amount of the ticket. 

All tax receipts will be mailed right after the Gala. If you want the tax receipt to go to someone other than the ticket purchaser or if you want the tax receipt for a table split amongst a number of people, follow the instructions provided when you purchase your ticket or table.

As we get silent and live auction items, they will be posted on our website and a programme of items will be available at the event.


A little about the project

This project will increase the number of affordable housing units in the Cowichan Valley. CWAV Society has an interest in a particular kind of housing. Called “second-stage”, this housing gives women who’ve left abusive relationships – some with children, some without – a year or two to get their feet on the ground.

The women will live in their own apartments at affordable rents. CWAV Society will have staff for tenancy support. The support may be as basic as how to be a good renter or it may include assistance in navigating the rather daunting legal, financial, co-parenting and emotional challenges that accompany separation.  The trauma that comes with abuse make all of these issues much more difficult and complex. Staff will be available weekdays and weekends.
