After a three-year hiatus, the Mt. Timothy Ski Area will host its popular annual fundraising dinner and auction next month.
“We are bringing it back,” said Mt. Timothy Ski Society director Debbie Dengel.
The event will be held at the Valley Room (behind the Red Coach Inn) in 100 Mile House on Feb. 7. Doors open for the viewing of auction items at 5 p.m., with a dinner at 6, followed by the auction beginning at 7:15.
Dinner will feature a deluxe buffet including baron of beef and dessert with a chocolate fountain.
Live dinner music will be provided by 100 Mile House artist Candace Copley. Also back by popular demand to head up the auctioneer position will be Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett.
“Our caterer will be William Holyk, a red seal chef, bringing years of expertise having worked at the Banff Springs Hotel and at Harrison Hot Springs,” Dengel said.
“Although he is now working in a different profession, he wanted to help Mt. Timothy and his community.”
The dinner and auction promises to provide an evening of entertainment for the entire family.
“We’re changing things up and want folks to come out for an enjoyable evening of visiting and live dinner music supporting the community. It’s an event to get dressed up for and the evening promises to be one filled with delicious food, fun and laughter.”
The Mt. Timothy Ski Society welcomes donations of items for the auction, and if anyone or any businesses has something they would like to donate, they can contact Dengel at 250-395-3658 in 100 Mile House or Karen Day at 250-398-5363 in Williams Lake.
Tickets are $35 and are available at Didi’s Boutique (100 Mile House), 108 Building Supply, Mt. Timothy Guest Service Desk or from Dengel at 250-395-3658.
