A Night of Lights at Hillside

Sunday's Night of Lights at Hillside Centre raises funds for B.C. Children's Hospital

Non-profit groups are once again busy at work – selling tickets and raising funds through Hillside Centre’s premiere event The Night of Lights (aka: The Night Before Late Night Shopping). Hillside provides charitable groups with tickets to the exclusive event; the groups sell tickets for $5 and keep 100 per cent of the proceeds.

The Night of Lights event marks the beginning of extended holiday shopping hours. The shopping centre is open to ticket holders only. It’s a great way to get a head start on your Christmas shopping and enjoy in-store bargains, tasty treats, live entertainment and a chance to win one of more than 75 fabulous door prizes including a trip for two to New York and diamond earrings.

Over 20,000 tickets to the Sunday, Nov. 22 (6-10 p.m.) event are in the hands of 70-plus non-profit groups, according to Hillside Centre’s marketing director Michele Paget. Tickets are also available at Hillside Guest Services, with all proceeds to B.C. Children’s Hospital.

 

 

Art on display

The Blenkinsop Valley Community Association is sponsoring its second annual Blenkinsop Valley Artists Show on Saturday. It will be held at the Royal Oak Golf Clubhouse (540 Marsett Pl.) from noon to 5 p.m.

During the summer months several established artists created works from Blenkinsop Valley scenes. Their work has been expressed in photographs, water colours, sculpting, etc.

Last year the event was very well received with an estimated 200-300 people attending.

The show has been organized with the help of well known public artist Illarion Gallant.
