Canyon Creek Women’s Crisis Center is inviting the community to share the love at its Valentine’s Dinner Fundraiser Feb. 14 in the SUU Great Hall on Southern Utah University’s campus.
The second annual CCWCC Valentine’s Dinner fundraiser will include a three-course gourmet dinner and live entertainment from the SUU Jazz Band. Proceeds from the dinner will go towards helping fund CCWCC programs for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
“This dinner is an extra special way to celebrate Valentine’s Day that goes beyond a regular date,” said Tessa Douglas, CCWCC board member and fundraising chair. “The beautiful venue, amazing menu, and live music create an incredibly romantic atmosphere, and supporting this important cause is an added bonus. It will be a night attendees will not soon forget!”
Beautifully decorated in the Southern Utah University Great Hall, the dinner makes a great night out for Valentine’s. CCWCC will be seating diners in half-hour intervals between 5 and 7:30 p.m. Reservations are needed and can be made online at ccwcc.org/valentine. Seating times will be 5:30, 6, 6:30, 7, and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 a person, $60 a couple, and $240 for a table of 8. All tips will be donated to Canyon Creek Women’s Crisis Center.
“Our first attempt at this event last year was a wonderful success, and we want to keep going because Valentine’s Day offers us as an organization and community the chance to celebrate healthy relationships and love based on mutual respect,” said CCWCC Executive Director, Dr. Brant Wadsworth. “Plus, its just a really wonderful evening!”
Menu items include a choice of salmon, filet mignon, prime rib, Maximillian chicken, or pasta primavera. Each meal includes soup or salad, a main dish, and a choice of dessert. Reservations and more information can be made online at ccwcc.org/valentine or by calling Canyon Creek Women’s Crisis Center main offices at (435) 867-9411.
