A special musical event is taking place Sept. 18 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. to raise funds for St. Joseph’s Hospital.

This event, hosted by the Evergreen Seniors Club, will feature the talents of local singers and musicians including the Heart Strings Group; Todd Butler; Steve Mason and Blain Waldbauer; the Doug Anderson Jazz Syndicate and the Strathcona Barbershop Quartet.

Organizer Dick Stuart says the funds raised will particularly benefit the emergency ward and the third floor extended care “where they saved my life twice.”

He adds that any contributions over and above $15 will be greatly appreciated and put to good use at the Hospital.

So come to the Florence Filberg Centre, bring your friends and enjoy all this for only $15, with free coffee/tea and cookies during intermission. Tickets are available at The Medicine Shoppe in Comox and the Florence Filberg Centre office in Courtenay.
