10th annual Diamond Dinner raises more than $21,000


According to The Williams Lake Tribune, the 10th annual Diamond Dinner and auction held at the Signal Point Event Centre in B.C. raised more than $21,000 toward the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre and the Women’s Contact Society.

The auction items during the dinner, which was graciously donated by Signal Point, included a trip to Mexico, a three-day fishing trip, and a visit to Harrison Hot Springs.

The event also included a raffle of a Canadian-cut diamond that has been purchased from Woodland Jewellers by event organizers for the past 10 years. The prize came with a setting of the winner’s choice donated by Woodland Jewellers and designed by Geoff Bourdon. This year’s winner, Mae Getz, was presented with a diamond as well as $1,200 worth of custom work on behalf of Woodland Jewellers.

One of the event’s beneficiaries, the Women’s Contact Society, will be supporting the Good Food Box program with its share of the total money raised. The Child Development Centre will be funding the new Cariboo Autism Center, which is set to open in 2015. CJ
