The Victoria Child Abuse Prevention and Counselling Centre (VCAPCC), also known as the Mary Manning Centre, is pleased to present the 1st Annual Vancouver Island Business Networking Gala on April 21st, 2018. A fun filled evening of dinner, dancing, musical entertainment and a silent auction with all proceeds going to an amazing cause. This event is to bring everyone from various types of industries together and make connections, and caters to everyone from those who work from home to large enterprises. Our goal is to bring everyone together and network with those that otherwise may not cross paths day to day, and help those at-risk in the community in the process.

Over the years VCAPCC has recognized the need for helping children and youth who have been subjected to domestic abuse and violence. They are currently the only Center in Victoria who provide counselling and group sessions to help children and families as a whole to overcome the abuse they have been subjected to. The Centre will do everything they can to ensure these programs continue for those in dire need of help, but they cannot do so without the proper funding in place; with hopes of more great supporters like yourself, they are hoping to overcome this challenge.

Each ticket sold includes a 3 course dinner prepared and served by ISLAND CULINARY SERVICE, as well as two drink tickets

So please join us for a fun filed night out with dinner, dancing and a silent auction with 100% of all the proceeds going to the VCAPCC to allow them to continue to successfully provide services where there is limited funding available to help those in need. At the end of the day the children are our future we need to help give them the best life possible.
