What to do? Every time a large event was hosted on the island a substantial amount of money was being spent for renting party and event supplies from Courtenay. A simple solution, keep the money local: To address the perceived need, the Community Fund invested in a complete set of supplies, everything needed to host an event on the island. These supplies are now available for rent to the public, and other island groups, and the net proceeds contribute money to the Community Fund.
Item & Rental Rate:
Transportation to, and from the venue is $75. each way. It is preferable that you provide your own loading and transportation, then there is no transportation charge.
Dishes, cutlery, and glasses, should be transported in a covered vehicle. All must be returned in well-rinsed condition, with glasses upside down in the crate. Linens must be dry before being placed in the bin provided (or mold happens).
Thank you for supporting this fund raising initiative of the Hornby Island Community Fund.
Getting our rentals locally was so much easier than bringing them from off island. AL
Charmaine was very accommodating and helpful when we needed to rent some extra glasses for a party. KR
For our big day we got everything we needed, except a tent, from the community fund. Fantastic service! BC
If you are planning a big event, the local Economic Enhancement Corporation (HICEEC) has done up an awesome PLANNER with local services listed. A fantastic resource for planning a wedding!
