2018 Malahat Nation - Golf and Gala
Since 2013, Malahat Nation has been honoured to host a premier Golf and Gala event to support critical Nation-building opportunities that will generate a vast positive change for many generations in the Malahat Nation community.
The 2018 event will be held on Friday, September 14 at Bear Mountain Golf Resort where we begin the day with an unforgettable golf event on a world class course. The evening features a cocktail reception, First Nations inspired dinner, great entertainment, golf awards, raffles, draws and both a live and silent auction featuring some of the finest Aboriginal artwork on the West Coast.
Please help us reach our 2018 goal of building a commercial quality community kitchen in our new multi-purpose facility. Your support will help Malahat provide nourishing meals for children in the new daycare and it will become the place we gather to cook together, celebrate and support one another.
By sponsoring the 2018 Golf and Gala, you will be giving Malahat members of all ages a chance to come together as a community, learning how to prepare nourishing meals and preserving the bounty of summer for the winter months. When we nourish the belly, we nourish the soul.
2017 Golf and Gala Highlights
We raise our hands to the community and business leaders who have stepped up each year to support this important event through sponsorship and participation. Thanks to you, Malahat Nation now offers a world-class Life Skills program that provides capacity building and many more opportunities for Malahat Members, Earlier this year, we were also able to start construction of our daycare and recreation centre.
Thank you for helping us raise nearly $250,000 to support future generations of the Malahat Nation. Support from business and community leaders made a huge difference in the success of our live and silent auctions generating an additional $50,000 in sales over the previous year.
The success of the 2017 Golf and Gala meant that a recreation facility will now be incorporated into our new multi-purpose facility-currently under construction.
A big heartfelt thank you to our sponsors, donors, volunteers and golfers who helped make this event an incredible success over the past five years. Your support is helping to transform the lives of the Malahat community. We raise our hands in thanks.
Thanks to our generous 2017 sponsors!
