The Abbotsford-Sumas Rotary Club hosts its annual St. Patrick’s Day party on Saturday, March 18 at Bradner Hall.
The event raises funds to support the club and its philanthropic efforts and includes a full buffet dinner and a silent auction.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m., with guests enjoying entertainment by magician and mentalist Anmol Singh, who combines the art of reading minds and sleight of hand. He has been performing magic since the age of 13 and has appeared in four reality TV shows.
Guests will also enjoy music and dancing courtesy of Spin Doctor DJ.
The Abbotsford-Sumas Rotary Club has been active for 26 years, providing support to the Abbotsford Women’s Transition House, Abbotsford Hospice, Cyrus Centre, the Foundry Youth Health Centre, Literacy Matters and the Archway Food Bank.
They are primarily known for building playgrounds and installing Little Free Libraries in local parks, community centres and social services offices.
The club supports international programs in providing wheelchairs and prosthetics to Guatemala and funding water projects in Turkey, Ethiopia and other developing countries.
President Aman Gill said the club is excited to be hosting the event again this year.
“With so many local organizations requiring increased support this year, we look forward to welcoming our generous supporters and raising funds that can be reinvested in our community,” Gill said.
Organizers are hoping for a strong turnout as the event returns to the St. Patrick’s Day weekend after three years of event restrictions and interruptions.
“While it was great to be back and host the event in April last year, it’s just not the same as celebrating on the lucky weekend in March,” said Rotarian Allan Asaph.
