Honour House to hold second star studded gala in Vancouver

VANCOUVER, March 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Honour House Society will hold its second Fundraising Gala "A Night for Heroes" on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at the Sheraton Wall Centre.

The gala event will raise funds for Honour House Society to continue to provide free accommodation to Canadian Forces Personnel, emergency services and their families while receiving medical treatment in the Metro Vancouver Area.

"Since opening our doors in 2011 we have provided 900 room stays and helped 1500 people. There is great demand for the services Honour House provides and we are proud to be able to give back to our heroes who put themselves in danger situations on a daily basis to protect us. I am very excited about our 2013 Gala - and our program which features some of our heroes and their stories. Also, we will be able to show our supporters what Honour House has accomplished and how they have helped make this dream a reality." said Allan De Genova, President of Honour House Society.

The Gala will include dinner, a live auction and entertainment. The first Honour House Gala Fundraiser celebrated the opening of Honour House, included a live performance by Sarah McLachlan and raised $225,000 for the charity.

Honour House, located at 509 St. George Street in New Westminster is a "home-away-from-home" for Canadian Forces Personnel, emergency services (fire, paramedics and police) and their families to stay in times of need, while receiving treatment in the Metro Vancouver area. Honour House Society is a registered not for profit and charitable organization with a mandate to provide accommodation at Honour House, free of charge, to the brave men and women who risk their lives daily to help others.
