Spooktacular raises money for breast cancer patient

On Saturday there will be a Halloween-themed benefit dance at the Courtenay Elks hall on Sixth Street downtown.

A BENEFIT DANCE Oct. 20 will raise funds to help cancer patient Nicole McHale.

On Saturday, Oct. 20 there will be a Halloween-themed benefit dance (aka the Halloween Spooktacular) at the Courtenay Elks hall on Sixth Street downtown.

The benefit is to support local breast cancer patient Nicole McHale.

Nicole is a 38-year-old mother of two. She was recently diagnosed with two different types of breast cancer and has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment and will soon undergo radiation.

With this at hand, she is facing much pain and hardship at this time, and is also being denied government disability funding, making it hard for her and her family to make ends meet.

So in regards to her problems her younger sister Carmen is putting together the event with the help of many Comox Valley and Campbell River businesses that have stepped in and showed a huge amount of support with this.

There has been a large array of items donated, which are being auctioned off at the Halloween benefit dance held on the 20th.

There will also be prizes for best male and female costumes as well as door prizes.

The event will also feature a performance by local rock n rollers The Impalas, who will be performing a collection of tracks throughout the evening.

Tickets are available at the local Courtenay Elks Lodge at 231 Sixth

St. from 3 to 6 p.m. every day.

The event is 19+ with ID required.

The doors for the event will open at 7 on the evening of Oct.  20.

All of the proceeds are for Nicole’s medical and living expenses during this time of need.
