The Canadian Red Cross is hosting its 4th annual Red Carpet Soiree at Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar May 12, 2011.

Red Carpet Soiree

This is one of my favourite annual events in Vancouver, and I have attended since 2009 with my good friend Keira-Anne. Aside from the dozens of coveted silent auction items, the deliciously addictive canapes, and the warm and jovial atmosphere, you will be supporting a fantastic cause when you attend.

Tickets are still available online until May 10th and can be purchased at the door May 12th, that is unless it completely sells out (which is very possible). Last year they had 300 guests and raised over $15,000 for the Canadian Red Cross’ Lower Mainland Region Disaster Management Program. Funds raised are staying local again this year with the 2011 event supporting Lower Mainland Region Humanitarian Support and Engagement Programs. If you are unable to attend, please consider making a donation.

I have two pairs of tickets to give away to a reader and their guest (value $250). If you would like to feel like a star at the Red Carpet Soirée, here’s how you can enter to win your way in:

  • Leave a comment on this post ( 1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
  • I entered to win a pair of tickets to @RedCarpetSoiree supporting @RedCrossCanada from @Miss604

    I will draw one winner at random from all entries at 12:00pm next Friday, May 6th. Must be 19 years of age or older as there will be wine served throughout the night.

    Update The winner is Mae (@sliveroflight) congratulations!
