VIDEO: Sweetheart Dance packs the Lake Cowichan 50+ Centre

Fun, frolic, and fundraising were on the menu Saturday night, Feb. 10 at the Lake Cowichan 50+ Activity Centre as area seniors joined with Cowichan Women Against Violence to offer a Sweetheart Dance for Valentine’s Day.

These events at the centre are getting quite a reputation for offering a great night out and every ticket was sold, according to centre spokesperson Ginny Saboe.

In the entertainment lineup there were spot dances, a special “selfie wall” with dress-up gear, a table of super silent auction items, a concert by the Lake Cowichan Tenors, and a dance to make it a fun event for everyone concerned.
