The Starlight Soiree returns to Golden

The Golden Women’s Resource Centre is putting together a night of great times at the annual Starlight Soiree fundraising event.

The Golden Women’s Resource Centre is putting together a night of great times and even better memories at the annual Starlight Soiree fundraising event. This year the event will be held on Nov. 22 at the Mount 7 Rec Plex. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. with the event starting at 7 p.m.

“The event is Golden’s most anticipated event. It is a fabulous event where everything from toques to top hats and birkenstocks to feather boas are welcomed,” Special Projects Co-ordinator for the Golden Women’s Centre, Sarah Wegelin said.

The gala evening is a fundraiser for the Golden Women’s Resource Centre which has many local entertainers, food challenges, silent and loonie auctions.

“Many generous local businesses have helped us and donated to the auctions,” Wegelin said.

There will also be a Woman of the Year draw which happens at the event. “We will be collecting nominations for this award. This is for any and every woman in Golden. The Women’s Centre is not going to decide if one woman is better than the other. It is selected through random draw and anyone can nominate a woman that they love,” Wegelin said.

The food challenge part of the event gives local restaurants the chance to show their creative side.

“This is a chance to present a new signature dish or something creative in the form of an appetizer or finger foods. Restaurants compete for best tasting, best display and best overall,” she said.

Wegelin also said that the event is for everyone.

“The Starlight Soiree is for  women and men.  It’s not just ladies night out, though it could be and is for many women. We encourage men to come out to the event, and every year we see more and more men coming, which is fantastic. No pressure to wear suits, just come and have fun with your friends, partners,” she said.

Tickets are $20 before and $25 at the door (if you bring a donating item for the food bank then the price will be $20 at the door.)

Tickets can be purchased at the The Moon River Gift Gallery and the Golden Women’s Centre.
