Dessert banquet for Cyrus Chilliwack a sweet fundraiser

The 2nd Annual Dessert Banquet & Silent Auction gets underway on Nov. 14 at City Life Church for the new Chilliwack youth shelter

The 2nd Annual Dessert Banquet & Silent Auction for Cyrus Centre Chilliwack is Nov. 14

Things are going great with Cyrus Centre Chilliwack since they opened the doors in September, said executive director Les Talvio.

About 25 young people have so far had temporary stays in the four-bed emergency youth shelter, and an even larger number have taken advantage of the support services offered at the Cyrus facility on Wellington Avenue in Downtown Chilliwack.

“We’re actively working to grow our community support here in Chilliwack,” Talvio said.

The Second Annual Dessert Banquet & Silent Auction gets underway on Nov. 14 at City Life Church at 46641 Chilliwack Central Road.

The goal is to raise $25,000 from the event, and proceeds will offset the cost of centre operations, and possibly fund more staff.

Event tickets are $15, available from Cyrus Centre Chilliwack. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Event is 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 14.
