Kiwanis Club of Duncan's Gala was a huge success

The partnership between the Chemainus Festival Theatre Society and the Kiwanis Club of Duncan paid off in more ways than just one.

Sufficient monies were raised to fund 2 Kiwanis teen Summer Theatre Camps and send 10 youth for a wonderful experience. However, much more was accomplished with this our first ever gala. The profile of the club was raised, we established a great relationship with the theatre, made new friends, 115 people had a great time with 7 major prizes for the fun gaming events, 21 door prizes and a fabulous performance form the Sound of Music Youth group, several of whom were "grads' from last years camp.

We plan to repeat this event next year!
