The Victoria Chapter of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada is preparing for its third November bash at the Strathcona Hotel.
The Nov. 30 party, called Giving for Gifts, runs from 6 to 9: 30 p.m. Organizers suggest doing Christmas shopping for trips, spa packages, trips, dinners and other items at the event's live and silent auctions.
Scott MacDougall will provide live music for the cocktail hour starting at 6 p.m., and guests can enjoy a selection of appetizers. Kathy Baan will be the auctioneer.
Advance tickets are $30. Call 250-721-1574.
Proceeds go to education and research efforts to help those with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. The conditions affect nearly 200,000 Canadians.
