The Swift Current United Way's 3rd annual Foundation of Hope Gala raised $75,000 in support of nine non-profit community programs. The elegant evening of dining and dancing took place at the Living Sky Casino Event Centre, Nov. 4. Tickets to the event were sold out more than a month ago and 230 people attended the gala.The nine grant recipients were recognized during a presentation ceremony when they received benefactor awards. This year's gala raised awareness about domestic violence and the work done by Southwest Crisis Services to provide support to individuals dealing with abuse. Ang's Story, a video about the courage, resilience and survival of a woman in an abusive relationship, was launched at the gala. A variety of quality items were on offer at the silent auction and there was also a live auction with auctioneer Skip Neufeld.
