Valentine fundraiser back again

The Big Band Valentine Gala Fundraiser, held for the first time last year, is back again.

The Big Band Valentine Gala Fundraiser, held for the first time last year, is back again.

The Rimbey Victim Services second major fundraiser will give the community a chance to swing into Valentine’s Day with all the pomp and splendor of the big band era.

The fundraiser, coming to Rimbey Community Centre on Feb. 8, promises those in an attendance an opportunity to experience all the romance of Valentine’s Day while supporting a worthy cause.

The semi-formal gala will get underway at 6 p.m. with cocktails, followed by a full course meal featuring prime rib and salmon. A live and silent auction is part of the evening’s exciting agenda.

The dance will kick off at 8 p.m. and will feature The Flatiron Jazz Orchestra from Lacombe. This well-known 17-piece band musical repertoire has a wide and delightful range and, no doubt, the melodies they will perform will persuade even the most reluctant person to put on their dancing shoes and dance the night away.

“They are a jazz band, but they do all kinds of music,” said Rebekah Seidel, chairperson of Rimbey & District Victim Services. “They are very well known in the area. Last year’s fundraiser was so popular we decided we would make it an annual event.”

Rimbey & District Victim Services Society is a non-profit, police-based association organization which assists the police in providing support, information and referrals to victims of crime, tragic or traumatic circumstances and disaster.

Victim Services also participates in local community education and awareness raising programs, providing valuable information to the general population on topics such as bullying, suicide, domestic violence, Internet safety and healthy relationships in teen dating.

The organization operates with a paid coordinator and a volunteer board of directors made up of community members.

Volunteer Advocates offer support to victims in the community.
