Foundation director Steven Hui explained they wanted to create a fun, signature event, and settled on the Roaring ‘20s for its fun, carefree feel. “It’s just gathering together, putting out some information and sharing some of the success. More on the fun side, not fund [side],” Hui said. The dinner and dance at the Glacier House Resort will feature chicken valentine, beef tenderloin, Waldorf salad, lemon cake, champagne and music by local jazz four-piece Relative Jazz. The Revelstoke Community Foundation provides grants and financial support to local community initiatives and student scholarships, amongst other endeavours. They gave over $20,000 in grants and bursaries this year. They focus their fundraising efforts on memorial funds and large donations from community members, and try to avoid competing with other community groups in fundraising. Hui said the board of directors is always interested in new talent, particularly with skills in finance, grant-making, marketing and investment management. “We know the town is changing and we are trying to attract people that reflect the new priorities in the community,” he said. In the next year, they are exploring launching a smart and caring communities fund. Join the RCF this Saturday, Nov. 23 at Glacier House Resort at 6 p.m. Tickets are $75. Pictured above, foundation members Peter and Zofie Humphreys are ready for the event, and are pictured with George Hopkins Sr.’s 1928 Model A Ford Coupe, which will be available for photo ops this Saturday at the event.
