AFA core staff, Victoria and Vancouver canvassing teams reunited at the Year-End Celebration.

The Ancient Forest Alliance would like to send a major THANK YOU to everyone who helped make our Year-End Celebration on November 25th a great success! The night was filled with great energy, socializing, music, food, and dancing. More than 150 people filled the Victoria Event Centre to its capacity.

Excitingly, we raised over $5000! A large portion of our proceeds resulted from the silent auction items that were generously donated by a variety of businesses and artists. We would like to thank the following groups for their support:

We would also like to send a special thanks to Oliver Swain for his fantastic live performance, as well as C-FretsDJ Rich Nines and Taquito Jalepeno for donating their time to the turn-tables. A double thanks to Chris Fretwell and Social Coast for playing a key role in organizing the event! Your time spent planning, printing materials and promoting the event is appreciated. 

Of course, THANK YOU so much to our incredible volunteers, supporters and AFA staff who without, we could not have pulled off such an enjoyable and successful evening. 

We are so grateful for your support.
