Flying Debris will rock the Elks

Come out for some serious sweets and some good rocking Oct. 29 at 7:30 at the Lower Elks hall.

Come out for some serious sweets and some good rocking Oct. 29 at 7:30 at the Lower Elks hall.

Flying Debris will dish out some familiar and original tunes that will have you tapping your toes and dancing the night away.  Local stores and bakeries and individuals around the Valley have donated a wonderful selection of decadent desserts.

There will be a silent auction with a unique assortment of items from local businesses and individuals’ homes.

There will be a bar to wet your whistle and all the proceeds from the evening will be supporting the Palestinian Abo-Nofal family during their first year in the Comox Valley.

Family members are refugees without a country and have spent the past four years living in a United Nations tented camp in the desert in northeastern Syria.

A Comox Valley committee has rented a home for them close to Courtenay Elementary School and are busy collecting furnishings.

If you know of anyone who speaks Arabic, please ask them to get in touch with us.

You can buy your tickets, $25, at the Laughing Oyster Bookshop on Fifth in Courtenay or Blue Heron Bookstore in Comox. Visit www.cvrefugeesupport.blogspot.com or on Facebook.

For more information, contact Dave at 250 218-7874.

If anyone can’t make the dance, but would like to donate, please write a cheque to Comox United Church and put Refugee Fund on the memo line and send it to Comox United Church, 250 Beach Dr., Comox, B.C. V9M 1P9. All contributions over $20 will receive an income tax receipt.
