Spaghetti dinner fundraiser for nationals-bound improv team

Vanier ‘Invested’ heading to Ottawa for Canadian improv championships

On Saturday, March 16, Vanier Senior Improv will be hosting a spaghetti dinner and an evening of entertainment at GP Vanier.

Vanier Senior Improv recently won the Vancouver Island Canadian Improv Games Tournament and earned a spot at the national tournament in Ottawa. The trip is a wonderfully exciting one with some of the best improvisers and improv trainers in Canada but there are many costs involved. This evening is one of the main fundraisers for the trip.
