Heroes, Heroines & Villains were among the guests all decked out for a special night out at the Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce's signature event, the 39th annual Gala dinner and auction. Guests participated in a very successful live auction, silent auction and games of chance, capping off the evening with dancing to tunes "spun" by Rockin Donny T. Successful bidders left smiling with some amazing gifts generously donated by our local businesses. It was a great opportunity to catch up with old friends or make some new ones. 

The Gala is the Chamber's premier fundraising event and funds from the Gala help the Chamber deliver programs into the community like the Canada Day celebrations, the Business Excellence Awards, secondary school scholarships and the Summer by the Sea Street Market, as well as year-round operation of the Parksville Visitor Centre.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their contributions to our event. The evening was successful again this year, thanks to the generosity of our donors and guests. Please consider these fine businesses when you are shopping for a product or service:
