Get ready to dress up and spend a romantic evening with your signification other by attending the Rimbey & District Victim Services (VSU) third annual Valentine’s Day gala fundraising event Saturday, Feb. 14, at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre.

The evening will start with cocktails at 6 p.m. and will offer guests a mouth-watering dinner of prime rib or salmon, catered by Bob Ronnie. Guests will enjoy live music entertainment performed by Shane Chisholm, with silent auctions and prize winnings to follow.

The VSU is a non-profit organization that offers support, information and referrals to local citizens who have been victimized by crime. The evening’s proceeds will go to support the organization, as the night is a major fundraising event for the year.

“People will see the warm-hearted and generous community of Rimbey supporting a valuable and important community service,” said board director Sandy Bell. “It’s also a wonderful and romantic night out on Valentine’s Day.”

The organization provides the general population with valuable information on topics such as domestic violence, fraud avoidance, bullying, Internet safety and healthy relationships in teen dating, Bell said.

“Feedback from those who have accessed our services consistently highlight the value and importance placed on the supports received by community members in times of need,” Bell said.

Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased at Stationery Stories & Sounds.
