Winchester – Cory and Jo-Ann Houle seem to sum up the night as they strike a pose at the Saturday Night Fever Disco Gala, held on June 16th at the Winchester Community Centre.
“We had a fabulous time,” notes Jo-Ann Houle, owner of Cup of Jo’s in Winchester. “The band was absolutely amazing, and we couldn’t sit down because it rolled along one hit after the other! We also loved the dinner from Winchelsea Events. Congratulations on an evening well done!”
Thank you to everyone who supported the gala, in support of the Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH). Guests enjoyed a delicious ‘70s with a twist’ dinner served by Winchelsea Events, great music by Groovy Little Orchestra, 70s games, contests, a photo booth, both live and silent auctions and many more surprises. MCs Chelsea Lacroix and Andreas Pandikiu from Fresh Radio 104.5 kept the evening moving along and auctioneer Chad Simmons delighted the crowd with a fun Eat First auction followed by a successful live auction.
“We can’t thank our local communities enough for their support,” notes Cindy Peters, Manager of Direct Mail and Events. “Everyone made a difference – our sponsors, our volunteers, all those who donated auction items and everyone who attended the event. A special thank you to our honorary chairs Tom and Jan Clapp.”
More than 200 people attended the gala and the final tally is still being calculated. Funds raised will support the Foundation’s Family Care Fund, supporting care for families just like yours.
