Flowing beer buys equipment for Langley Lodge

A cheque for $14,000 will help buy some major equipment for the seniors in care at Langley Lodge.

And it’s the goal of three Rotary Clubs in Langley to raise that amount for the Langley care Society this Friday, July 10.

Members from the Langley Sunrise, Langley Central, and Langley Rotary clubs are once again joining forces to host this year’s Tip ‘n’ Taste event, explained committee chair David Truman.

Last year’s event attracted about 500 guests and raised more than $13,000, and Truman believes this year’s fundraiser will attract closer to 550 people and raise in excess of $14,000.

There are 28 beverage vendors participating, as well as eight local food vendors participating in this year’s event. The food vendors include Brown’s Socialhouse, Choo Choo’s, Earls, JD Farms, Me ‘n’ Ed’s Pizza, Original Joe’s, and Sammy J’s.

“Our specialty beer vendors and food vendors are top-notch,” Truman said. “The convention centre and vendors all participate and provide product at no cost to Rotary, so almost all of the funds raised will go to our beneficiary.”

When Truman was asked what he personally felt was the best aspect of this fundraiser, he replied: “Other than great beer and fantastic food, I think the relaxed social atmosphere makes it a great place to hang with friends and enjoy the evening.”

Tip ‘n’ Taste is being held in the ballroom at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre, starting at 6 p.m. on Friday.

Tickets are $30 each and available ahead of time online at www.tipntaste.com or by calling 604-329-9604.

Admission, Truman said, includes tickets for five beverage samplers, and five food samples, as well as automatic entry for a number of door prizes.
