Fundraiser for Bates

A Bollywood-themed fundraiser will help Gayle Bates in her battle against cancer.

Finding a rickshaw to transport a group of women to Bollywood on April 4 would be difficult.

Finding tickets to the event — not so tough.

Ticket sales have been brisk and women in the community who want to attend this amazing event are advised to pick their tickets up at Level 10 Eurospa on Cliffe or Secret Drawers Lingerie on Fifth  Street in Courtenay before the March 5 deadline.

An authentic Indian meal that includes saffron chicken, shishkebabs, and spicy lemon pilaf are but a few of the delicacies to be presented by Gourmet Girls. Combine great food with a quick bhangra dance lesson, music created especially for the event by JPrime, and lots of dance demos — and it will prove to be a night of fun.

Never mind that you can’t find a rickshaw — use what transport is available and get yourself down to the ticket venues. Then hit the local consignment/second-hand hand stores and find your Bollywood outfit and work on your dance moves.

The event is a fundraiser to assist popular Comox Valley resident Gayle Bates, who is receiving treatment for breast cancer.
