Community raises money

Silver Star Dreamweavers, a non-profit society formed to support the Silver Star Community, held a dazzling, delicious fundraising dinner “Do You Believe in Magic?” on Thursday, January 18, 2018 at the Chilcoot Centre catered by 1609 Restaurant. Wine from Van Westin Vineyards was organized by Guy Morazain. The event was aimed to raise money for the defensive Structure Protection Unit (SPU). This cargo trailer will be filled with sprinklers, hoses and pumps that can be set up on rooftops to protect from fire transfer due to floating embers.
Robin Baycroft was MC for the evening while Leif David, performed magic to guests, leaving them confounded by his brilliant tricks. Silver Star’s own Paralympic Gold Medalist Josh Dueck inspired the crowd with his keynote speech. 
Attended at the dinner and external donations raised a grand total of $16,000. Silver Star Dreamweavers wishes to thank their key sponsors SilverStar Mountain Resort, Judd and Kay Buchanan, Peter and Terry Leggat.
