“The Winner’s Circle” Fundraiser | February 19 at Heritage Hall

Do you fancy a stylish night out? Are you wishing for a wager on the horses? Then you may want to reserve your spot at The Winner’s Circle in Vancouver this February.

The night of virtual horse racing on Tuesday, February 19 is hosted at Heritage Hall on Main Street by organizers from Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House.

From 6 to 9 p.m., ticket holders can enjoy gambling on virtual horse races, taking part in a silent auction, and vying for the coveted “best hat” and “best dressed” prizes.

Tickets include a chicken or vegetarian curry, plus a beer or signature cocktail, and entry into a draw for a wide array of door prizes. Bets, beers, and cocktails are $2 each, so bring your toonies.

Tickets are available for $45/person for this ages 19+ event.

All proceeds will support Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, a local charity which provides a welcoming space for people from around the world, all walks of life and every generation.

“As a community of folks from around the globe, we’re thrilled to bring the UK’s virtual horse-racing trend to Vancouver—thanks to our relationships with The Cascade Company and the Mount Pleasant Business Improvement Area,” said Jocelyne Hamel of Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House.

As well as providing a Canadian home away from home for newcomers and neighbours from around the world, Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House also runs a wide range of community programs.

These diverse services include everything from childcare programs and support for seniors to food and literacy programs, Indigenous gatherings, and employment support.

“We’re collaborating with local businesses to ensure our changing neighbourhood thrives in connection, celebration, engagement and leadership,” said Hamel.

“Many people in our city experience social isolation, but The Winner’s Circle will bring diverse neighbours together, as we create socially-integrated spaces where everyone can belong.”
