Annual Christmas Luncheon & Elections Meeting

TBD

Held in early December each year, Destination Greater Victoria’s Annual Christmas Luncheon combines a traditional turkey luncheon with fundraising efforts for the BC Hospitality Foundation, Destination Greater Victoria’s Official Charity Partner.

The event includes a short elections meeting and introduction to the Board of Directors. One of our most popular events, the Christmas Luncheon is a great opportunity to network and get in the holiday spirit.

Destination Greater Victoria is honoured to be based on the traditional territory of the Lekwungen-speaking peoples of the Songhees Nation and the Esquimalt Nation, whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
