The Comox Valley Multicultural and Immigrant Support Society (CVMISS) is holding a family summer barbecue/potluck to support a young boy with brain cancer next weekend.

The CVMISS barbecue/potluck will take place Aug. 20 from 2 to 7 p.m. at 4659 Headquarters Rd. to raise money for Sammy Antuñez Marquez and his family.

“Little Sammy is only 11 years old, and he is battling with his brain cancer,” Jin Lin, director of the CVMISS said in a press release. “He is such a brave little boy.”

There will be a silent auction, games, music and entertainment during the day.

“Little Sammy needs our community’s generous aid,” said Lin. “We know that you care!”

The CVMISS will provide barbecue items and non-alcoholic drinks, and everyone is welcome to bring a lovely dish to share with others.

During the day, pianist Dean Sanchez and a guest cellist will perform, along with folk singer Nick Sullivan and Rumba Latino dance instructor Javier Acevedo.

A silent auction will be held by the Committee for Sammy Antuñez Marquez.

A small fee of $5 will be charged for ages 10 and older to cover food costs. Everyone is welcome for overnight tenting at no extra cost.

For more information, contact Jin Lin at 250-898-9567 or maplepool@shaw.ca.
