CHARLOTTETOWN – The Stars for Life Foundation is gearing up to host its eighth annual Stars for Life gala dinner and auction, The Evening of the Stars featuring Wayne Rostad.
Over the past seven years, this event has raised more than $400,000 allowing the Stars for Life Foundation to operate its programming for adults with autism spectrum disorder through their home and resource centre facilities.
“Wayne’s generosity with his time and talent has been paramount tour success,” said Carolyn Bateman, co-founder of the Stars for Life Foundation. “Wayne is one of the most recognized voices and faces on the Canadian landscape and is an Order of Canada recipient.”
Bateman said the success of the event over the years comes from the wide-ranging support Islanders have given the foundation.
“This event would not be possible without the help from Islanders that have been very generous through the donation of prizes, auction items, purchasing tickets to attend and promoting the evening,” she said.
The dinner and auction will take place on Thursday, May 15 at the Rodd Royalty Inn.
Tickets are available by calling the Stars for Life office at (902) 894-9286 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are $125 with a donation receipt of $75. Corporate tables are also available.
