Each year, the Parksville & District Community Awards, “The Glassies”, honours individuals, associations and businesses that have made a significant contribution to the Parksville community.
An independent nominations review panel selects those nominees that truly meet the awards criteria: a business, association or person who demonstrates a great capacity for caring, applying original ideas, accepting challenges, and taking risks while balancing the social needs of the community.
The 14th Annual Glassies awards ceremony will be held at the Parksville Community & Conference Centre, Friday, March 6, 2015. A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available for this gala community event. Click here for more information.

30th Annual Fantasy Auction.
On October 18, 2014, the Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce will be hosting its 30th Annual Fantasy Auction. We're going "BACK TO THE FUTURE!", back to the beginning, in 1984! We're planning some surprises, and some familiar favourites, with a tapas style dinner catered by Stewart's Catering. Featured entertainment and dancing will be by Eddie and the Funk.
The Fantasy Auction is a night of fund raising! Your Chamber of Commerce takes on many responsibilities and projects within our community, such as economic and social development (business start up and relocation counseling, residential relocation packages, retail promotions, etc), Community Awards night, and hosting public meetings. As well, the Chamber of Commerce operates the Visitor Centre year round.
The annual Fantasy Auction fundraiser includes a gourmet tapas-style dinner, Silent and Live Auctions, draws and dancing! It’s one of Parksville’s premier social events and you don’t have to be a Chamber of Commerce member to enjoy this special night. Just call 250-248-3613 for your tickets, which are $75 each, $550 for a table of 8 or $700 for a table of 10. Early bird pricing until July 24, 20214: $65 pp.FREE SHUTTLE service is provided to get you home after the event.
