A Night at Studio 54

The 2019 Purica Gala was a true success! Featuring a Studio 54 theme with 70’s disco hits played by Wunderbread, and a delicious curated menu by Chef Fatima Da Silva this Gala was an evening to remember.

The Purica Foundation would like to thank all who attended. A special thank you to the volunteers who made this possible and the sponsors. This Purica Gala raised $100,000 for the Cowichan Valley Youth Services Project!
