LIFE (Living in Freedom Every Day) Recovery Association in Abbotsford hosts its fifth annual fundraising gala on Saturday, Oct. 29 at the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre.

La Dolce Vita begins at 5 p.m. and features an Italian dinner with five chef-attended food stations, live music by the Dr. Strangelove Band, and silent and live auctions.

Guests must come dressed in black and white attire.

All auction proceeds benefit LIFE Recovery programs which provide rehabilitation for women with substance addictions.

The recovery home has 18 beds where professional staff are scheduled 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

For many women, the program takes three to four months to complete, using a 12-step approach and other life-skills programs.

Tickets for the gala are $150 each.

For more information about the event or to purchase tickets, call 604-556-1031 or email events@liferecovery.ca.
