2022 Purica Gala

Oh Schitt! We’re Back!

With the return of the Purica Gala for 2022 the Purica Foundation pulled out all the stops! Featuring handcrafted iconic sets from the popular television series Schitt’s Creek. With musician Ange Hehr playing popular songs and catering by Chef Fatima Da Silva this Gala was truly memorable.

The Purica Foundation would like to thank all who attended and to all of the sponsors. This Purica Gala raised $150,000 for the Cowichan Valley Youth Services Youth Hub Project.
