Spring Fling Swish Gala: May 3

Dressed to the 9’s at the Spring Fling fundraiser for the Rainbow Resource Centre! Dig out your seersucker suits, big straw hats and summery apparel – after the polar vortex of 2014, we’re going to welcome spring like never before! 

You’ve probably been to gala fundraisers before, but not one that’s this much fun! The evening will feature a gourmet meal by the Delta Winnipeg’s Head Chef accompanied by fine wines, dancing to great music from the HMCS Chippawa Band and DJ Mama Cutsworth, a chance to bid on some amazing prizes in the silent auction and, of course, a lot of fun with our host Chrissy Troy of Virgin Radio.
