Celebrities like Robin Thicke, Steven Tyler, Jay Leno and The Tenors among other superstars will have a little taste of Langley when they attend the David Foster Foundation’s Miracle Gala and Concert at Rogers Arena Saturday, Oct. 21.
Cranberries Naturally owner Jasmine Marjanovic is tickled red that her cranberry products were requested for the welcome gift baskets that will be given to celebrity guests and sponsors.
“The baskets will be presented in each guest’s room upon their arrival and contain select brands and local products that capture the heart of the west coast,” reads the request letter Marjanovic received from the David Foster Foundation.
This is the gala’s 30th anniversary. Oprah Winfrey and Goldie Hawn have now confirmed their attendance, too.
Last year, the Miracle Gala and Concert was held at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Man. and attracted an affluent audience of nearly 1,000 VIPs and hundreds of concert goers.
The event raised millions of dollars to assist Canadian families whose children are going through the live-saving organ transplant process.
The David Foster Foundation has helped several Langley families with travel costs and family support while a child was going through a transplant.
“It was a complete surprise to be asked to be part of the gift baskets. I’m so excited,” said Marjanovic.
She has already packaged and sent the 50 jars of cranberry jelly to the Foundation.
And she’s bought her tickets to the event.
“I’m taking Jack and Deb,” said Marjanovic, referring to Township mayor Jack Froese and his wife Debbie.
Cranberries Naturally, which sells everything cranberry, from ketchup and salad dressings to dried cranberry and jellies, celebrates 18 years in business in Gasoline Alley in Fort Langley.
Her quaint shop is one of the only places that sells Canadian cranberry products, some berries even come from the bogs in Langley.
“Life is good,” comments Marjanovic who is just coming off an extremely successful Cranberry Festival in Fort Langley where an estimated 30,000 visitors enjoyed the day.
This isn’t the first time her cranberry products could be found in celebrity swag bags.
She supplied Cranberries Naturally products for the pre-Oscar bags twice a few years ago.
