Fundraising gala on stunning estate supports free cancer care services

InspireHealth improves quality of life for those living with cancer

A Night to Inspire offers a chance to enjoy an evening of food and drink on a beautiful estate in support of a not-for-profit organization that provides free supportive cancer care services.

Almost 30,000 people in B.C. will get diagnosed with cancer this year, according to BC Cancer Agency – a number that highlights the ongoing importance of funding resources that help people cope with diagnosis and treatment.

InspireHealth is a supportive cancer care centre offering individualized and group support in the areas of exercise therapy, stress management, nutrition and counselling. The services are offered at no cost to cancer patients and their loved ones.

While InspireHealth is partially funded by the Ministry of Health, the remainder of the budget has to be fundraised, to a tune of one million dollars annually, in order to support the programs being offered at no cost.

The exclusive gala event, to raise funds and awareness, will be held Oct. 20 with guests enjoying a cocktail reception at Fortune Gallery before heading to The View, a stunning waterfront mansion overlooking the Saanich Inlet.

A special culinary presentation by Warren Barr, executive chef of the Wickaninnish Inn is paired with live entertainment, and a silent and live auction throughout the evening.

A Night to Inspire will be held from 5:30 to 10 p.m. on Oct. 20.
