On November 22, members and supporters of the Avalon community in White Rock came together to show their musical talents and festive spirit at the second annual Elves & Artists: A Holiday Concert.

It was an uplifting and inspiring evening celebrating the strength of women in recovery and raising vital funds for Avalon Recovery Society.

The event was opened with words of welcome from White Rock Deputy Mayor Anthony Manning, and featured local artists performing original compositions and holiday favourites to the crowd at White Rock Players' Club, located just next door to Avalon Women’s Centre White Rock.

Attendees also had the opportunity to peruse the silent auction, which showcased exciting items like handmade clothing, theatre tickets and exclusive dining opportunities.

Audience members also heard guest speaker, Registered Clinical Counsellor and Avalon Board Director Carrie DeJong, speak about the importance of Avalon, and heard a personal testimony from a woman about how the Avalon Women's Centre in White Rock had made an incredible difference in her life.

“We are so grateful to all of the performers, supporters, sponsors and volunteers who made the night so special,” said Leanne Utendale, Centre Manager at Avalon Women’s Centre White Rock.

“This event does so much more than raise important funds for Avalon, it helps break down stigma and raises our profile in the community so we can help even more women and families who need us.”

Thank you to everyone involved in this important and inspiring event for Avalon!
