Join Elizabeth and the BC Green Party at the Forty and Forward Gala! This event is not only a celebration of four decades of dedication to environmental stewardship and progressive politics but also a momentous occasion as the BC Greens mark ten years in caucus and gear up for the next provincial election.
This 40th anniversary celebration is a fundraiser and will take place in Victoria on Saturday, October 14, from 7pm to 11pm. The theme for the event is Forty and Forward and has a semi-formal dress code. We will be providing dinner and drinks as well as entertainment for dancing in the later part of the evening.
What to expect:
- Connecting with Greens: Join us for an evening of reflection on our journey so far and exciting discussions about the path forward. This event provides a unique opportunity to connect with fellow Greens, MLAs, candidates, and community members who share our passion for a more sustainable and equitable future.
- Prominent speakers: We are honoured to host prominent speakers from the party’s history. Our speakers will showcase our achievements over the years while inspiring us for the road ahead.
- Party leaders and candidates: Our leadership team (Leader Sonia Furstenau, MLA Adam Olsen, Deputy Leader Dr. Sanjiv Gandhi, and Deputy Leader Dr. Lisa Gunderson) and past and present candidates will be in attendance. Sonia and Adam will share their experiences with the party and in caucus, igniting enthusiasm among all the soon-to-be-elected Greens in the room!
- Dutch auction fundraiser: Get ready for an exciting Dutch Auction (run by Sonia and Elizabeth May!) that will keep you engaged and entertained throughout the evening. Whether you’re a seasoned bidder or new to the concept, it’s all about fun, fundraising, and supporting the BC Green Party.
- Interactive activities: We will have a photo booth to capture memories with friends and fellow Greens, helping us to create mementos to cherish long after the event. We will also have donation and membership forms, petitions, and more. Plus, enjoy interactive activities designed to engage and connect with fellow attendees. Hint: The Green Globe Awards returns!
