New Year’s Eve fundraising dinner and dance in Mission

Mission will host the second annual New Year’s Eve dinner and dance.

Last year’s event raised nearly $5,500 for the Mission Christmas Bureau. Organizers Nick Csaszar and Bob Paterson say the event is on track to do even better this year.

With a team of like-minded volunteers, they wined, dined and entertained nearly 250 festive locals as they rang in the New Year last year.

This year’s event will begin with a large dinner buffet followed by live music from the Chilliwack band Head Over Heels that will be sure to keep the dance floor busy.

Tickets are $45. For tickets, text Bob at 604-217-0325 or Nick at 604-836-4466.

The event takes place at the Silverdale Hall, 8760 McLean St. Doors open at 6 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m.
