Hands Around the World will link to host a fundraising dinner and silent and live auctions at Uplands Golf Club next month.

The event will go to support the Creative Peace Mural Society, a group that promotes international understanding through the creation of textile murals that represent local culture, history and geography.

The Society has worked on 11 textile murals since 2000, with communities in Canada, China, Coast Salish Nation, Japan, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Switzerland, Uganda, Ukraine and Uruguay.

The most recent mural was developed in 2012 to celebrate the Olympic and Paralympic values of truce, friendship and respect.

All 11 murals are coming to Victoria for public exhibition at the Royal Theatre on December 13, 14 and 15.

Attend the fundraiser at Uplands Golf Club (3300 Cadboro Bay Rd.) on Wednesday, Oct. 9, 6 p.m. cocktails, 7 p.m. dinner. $50.
