Hearts gone wild

Just in time for Valentine's Day, the Castlegar and District Hospice Society is presenting “Hearts Gone Wild.”

February – ’tis the season for romance and what’s more romantic than chocolate and lingerie? Just in time  for Valentine’s Day, the Castlegar and District Hospice Society is presenting “Hearts Gone Wild” at Chances Gaming Centre ballroom on Feb. 9.

“This is a new event for Hospice,” said executive director Suzanne Lehbauer. “It involves chocolate, champagne, a dessert buffet, a chocolate fountain, and a fabulously sexy lingerie fashion show by Fashion Foundations. We’re also going to have Safeway floral on hand and Linda’s Photo Op to take pictures of people. We’ll have some great accompaniments if people want to get dressed up.”

Also at the event, Detail’s Chocolate Expressions will be there giving out samples, and selling chocolates as well.

“People can come have a wonderful evening and order their valentine’s chocolates, flowers and lingerie in advance,” said Lehbauer. “We have a three piece jazz trio from Selkirk College performing as well.”

Tickets are $20 and include a glass of sparkling pink wine, samples of chocolates, dessert buffet with the chocolate fountain, and an entry into the door prize draw.

“Our big door prize is airfare for two to Vancouver,” said Lehbauer. “You’ll be able to buy additional chances while you’re there. It’s going to be a fabulous time for singles and couples with lots of goodies. We’re having a bit of a Moulin Rouge theme this year, so it’s going to be quite over-the-top. It’s something that’s a little different for the area. If it’s a success we’re going to incorporate it as one of our yearly events.”

Tickets are available at the Castlegar and District Hospice Society office, Mountain FM, Glen’s Haircuts, Fashion Foundations, and Chances Gaming Centre. You can even call Suzanne at the Hospice office at 250-304-1266 for delivery in town.

“All funds raised stay in the community and help benefit Castlegar Hospice Society to provide all the services and support and community education,” said Lehbauer.
