Party for a Purpose Gala 2018 IWOF

Gala Feb 24, 2018

This year’s Formal Gala and Experience Auction once again brought together our amazing community in support of Grace Orphanage in the Congo to improve the lives of children in this challenged country. This is the third year for Moksha Yoga Nanaimo and Island Optimal Health & Performance to have hosted the event, which has raised over $50,000 to date for the benefit of others in need.

The glorious evening was held at 7pm in the spectacular Cruise Ship Terminal, provided by our Event Sponsor – Helijet. The evening consisted of live music by Johnny Inappropriate, drinks from local White Sales Brewery & Good Life Juice, canapes from Jonday Foods, and many other food and drink features. Topping off the evening was an Experience Auction consisting of live and silent auction items, and dancing!
