‘Benefit For Bexy’ fundraiser for Lennox Saturday

Silent auction, entertainment, in support of Courtenay councillor

Benefit For Bexy is shaping up to be a stellar event.

“I’m overwhelmed at the response from individuals and companies by way of money and donations for the silent auction,” Rebecca (Bex) Lennox stated. “There’s everything from a load of gravel to exquisite ornaments, a custom-made garden bench and original art work. It’s stupendous.”

Rebecca has been in treatment for cancer since February and the treatments are working well; however, they are also hugely expensive, and are not covered by the B.C. Medical Plan.

She recently returned to work on Courtenay city council and is delighted to be back.

“Being away made me realize how much I like my job,” Rebecca said. “It has been interesting to navigate something so personal while being in a public position, and I am so grateful for the care and respect everyone has shown me.”

The Benefit for Bexy will happen at the Rotary Room of the Filberg Centre on Saturday, Dec.10.

There will be local beer, food, engaging entertainment, including the legendary Ms. Adventures, Norbury and Finch, and Indigo Jazz, as well as individual performers.  The silent auction will start at 4 p.m. and close at 8 p.m.  DJs will provide beats from 9:30 p.m. to l a.m.  Doors will open at 4 p.m. Come early, stay late, get your Christmas shopping done, eat, drink and be merry!

Cash can also be donated through Go Fund Me Rebecca Lennox.

For more info, contact Hazel Lennox at 250 334-2352.
