Award-winning jazz singer Denzal Sinclaire will perform at the first-ever Surrey Soirée

Surrey Soirée benefits literacy programs

Funds from inaugural white-themed event to support Surrey Libraries campaign.

Don your most elegant white attire, and enjoy a gourmet dinner and world-class entertainment – all while helping to support local literacy programs.

The first-ever Surrey Soirée is a gala event taking place July 11 with an all-white theme, where guests will be served a three-course meal outdoors while listening to the music of the Brandenburg Strings Quartet.

Guests will not only be wearing white, but will be seated under white tents strung with twinkling white lights and surrounded by white floral arrangements.

After dinner, the jazz sounds of B.C. Entertainment Hall of Fame inductee Denzal Sinclaire will fill the air (joined by drummer Joel Fountain and bassist Adam Thomas), with Agent C & Top Secret taking the stage later in the evening to keep things swinging.

Guests will also have the opportunity to enter a raffle to win a Caribbean cruise, courtesy of Central City Shopping Centre.

All profits from the inaugural event will support Surrey Libraries’ Literacy for Life campaign, which provides reading and writing programs for all ages.

Last year, the library programs helped more than 150,000 children and adults through its Early Literacy, Workplace Literacy, Diversity/Multicultural programming and Read-Ability Services.

Tickets to Surrey Soirée are $150 per person, available online at www.surreysoiree.ca or by calling 604-501-5566 ($75 tax receipt available upon request). Guests must be 19 or older to attend.

The evening will be hosted at the City Centre Library on the plaza at Surrey City Hall (13450 104 Ave.)

The plaza opens at 6:30 p.m., with dining beginning at 7 p.m. Denzal Sinclaire will enter the spotlight at 8 p.m., with Agent C & Top Secret performing at 9:30 p.m.
