Roundin’ up the loot for Kickin’ It Country

Wednesday, November 4, 2015

COQUITLAM – You’d better bring an extra saddlebag to the Coquitlam Foundation’s Kickin’ It Country party next week because you’re bound to leave with some great loot.

That’s because the foundation has wrestled up a wagon-load of great silent- and live-auction items, plus a passel of appealing door prizes that’ll be sure to please Coquitlam’s fun-loving cowboys and cowgirls.

The fun runs from 6:30 p.m.- 10:30 p.m. (or to whenever the cows come home) on Saturday, Nov. 14, at the Centennial Pavilion, 620 Poirier Street, Coquitlam.

Your $50 ticket will get you some great Cactus Club grub, including ribs and chicken. There’ll be dancing to the music of Caydance Dance Studios, entertainment by Tony Prophet and fiddler Jesse Kazemir, and liquid refreshments too. Email or call 604.468.9598 to order tickets. If you’re coming, be sure to don your best country duds!

And what about those prizes and auction items? With auctioneer Tracy McLaren riding herd on the action, we’ll be auctioning off a weekend for two at the Westin Resort & Spa in Whistler, a Westwood Plateau golf package, gift certificates from MedRay Imaging, a vacation package to Victoria, Canucks tickets and more. We’ve got gift certificates galore, a spa basket, training sessions with Innovative Fitness, a goodies basket from Winexpert and, well, you get the picture.(And speaking of “picture,” please visit our Facebook page for a photo of director Linda Meneghello with some of the auction items.)

All proceeds will support the foundation’s operations and charitable endeavours. The foundation always welcomes donations to its foundation-directed and donor-advised funds. Please visit the Donate section of our website for more details. The Coquitlam Foundation is registered with Canada Revenue as a charitable organization, No. 890762347 RR0001.
