5th Annual Quest for A Cure a Great Success
September 15, 2015
On Saturday September 12th, people gathered in the world’s largest wine glass in the Similkameen Valley, raising money for cancer prevention and awareness for the local area. About $12,000.00 was raised through the efforts of many volunteers and the generosity of the guests.
VineGlass Vintner’s Resort owner, Roger Hol has been directly affected by cancer with the loss of his partner to brain cancer. Their friends, family and generous sponsors of the event all agreed that the 5th Annual Quest For A Cure was a resounding success.
VineGlass, once again proved to be the perfect venue for a large party. Guests were invited to enjoy VineGlass Vintner’s Resort’s lovely gardens that bank the Similkameen River or enjoy the pool area. The evening began in the garden market, followed with a buffet dinner, auctions and entertainment by tribute band Barracuda with Heart and Pat Benatar. The dancing continued well into the night when Mr. Jerry Doucette took the new stage because “Mama let him play”.
In memory of Jyl Chegwin, Roger and the team at VineGlass would like to express our appreciation to the numerous volunteers and sponsors that contributed to make this event such a success.
If you know anyone that has been affected by cancer, mark May 21, 2016 on your calendar and we will see you next year for the 6th Annual Quest for A Cure family event.
