Coalition of Progressive Electors winter gala

Saturday, February 26, 2011 - 23:00 to Sunday, February 27, 2011 - 00:00

COPE is celebrating winter in style with a masquerade ball at the beautiful Museum of Vancouver! The COPE Winter Gala is a chance for you to dress up and spend a wonderful evening with fellow
COPE supporters, elected officials and leaders of Vancouver's labour and political community.

Hosted by the talented and hilarious Charlie Demers, the evening features an exciting taste of the west coast with food inspired by Vancouver, a judging panel of the best masks and a special musical performance you won't want to miss -- all surrounded by the beautiful views of English Bay.

Tickets for the event are $70 each, with early bird tickets including a free bar ticket or $5 off, and student/youth under 28 or fixed income tickets available for only $40. Tickets are available online here: or can be purchased directly from COPE without a fee via email or phone: or 604-255-0400.

Tickets for individuals on low or fixed income are also available, as well as a small selection of complimentary tickets. They can be obtained by contacting COPE directly.

COPE needs your support as we head into a fall election, especially one with so many critical issues facing Vancouver including affordable housing, accessible parks and community centres and the threat to our neighbourhood schools. Your support means COPE can continue the important work it has at City Council, Parks Board, and School Board.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
