The Malahat Nation has assembled a diverse slate of aboriginal celebrity performers for their 2015 gala dinner, silent and live auction on Friday, Oct. 16, at the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Hotel and Spa in Victoria.

The evening, which features keynote speaker Roseanne Supernault, an aboriginal actress, director and writer that people may know from the APTN hit television series Blackstone, and Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq, begins at 6 p.m.

The event is an annual nation building exercise and this year’s theme is A Great Nation Built by Great Champions, “bringing together Malahat Nation’s biggest supporters from across Canada.

By highlighting Malahat’s achievements and showcasing the generosity of their nation building champions, Malahat seeks to fundraise $150,000 to fund life-changing social development programs in the Nation’s Kwunew Kwasun Cultural Centre,” event organizers said in a press release.

Individual ticket sales will be available after Oct. 10. Space is limited. For more information, visit www.malahatnationchampions.ca and www.malahatnation.ca
