Masked, moonlit fundraiser in Surrey

Youth-run non-profit group organizes masquerade event for charity Nov. 7.

Moonlight Masquerade, benefiting Beneath One Sky, SOS Children’s Village BC, and ANCOP Canada, takes place Nov. 7 from 7-11 p.m. at Surrey City Hall.

Masks and costumes are encouraged for a fundraising evening that includes a door prize, drink and a gift – and helps support those in the need.

“How often can we say we put on a mask to support those in need?” said Felicia Rafael, co-founder and current president of the grassroots non-profit. “We want the Moonlight Masquerade to be a fun evening which also serves to raise funds for marginalized populations in our local and global communities.”

Beneath One Sky has been supporting the poor through voluntary efforts and fundraising events for over five years. From 2009 to 2012, Beneath One Sky ran an annual benefit concert to raise money to build houses for the poor in the Philippines through ANCOP (Answering the Cry of the Poor) Canada. Between these annual fundraising events, the organization regularly supports the community locally, be it volunteering at soup kitchens or hosting their own outreach events called “Backpack Runs.”

Tickets ($17) for the Nov. 7 masquerade must be purchased in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door.

City hall is located at 13450 104 Ave.
