Easy Street

1st Tuesday Fundraiser takes a stroll down Easy Street

Raising money for Glacier View Lodge

Enjoy an evening of music with Annie Handley and Dave Devindisch as their band Easy Street raises money for Glacier View Lodge at the next 1st Tuesday Fundraiser on Feb. 2.  The evening concert is at the Mex Pub and starts at 7:30 p.m. with admission by donation.

Handley is a singer/songwriter from Vancouver Island who has a positive upbeat style, a mesmerizing voice, and a natural talent for songwriting.

Combine her easy going smooth musicality with the comedic energy of Devindisch and you get great harmonies, funky upright bass playing and a very entertaining duo.  Together these multi-instrumentalists deliver a repertoire from ’40s music to modern favourites in their own fun jazzy style.

The evening will start off with an opening set by hosts Judy and Bruce Wing, joined by violinist Blaine Dunaway, followed by Easy Street, and draws for door prizes.

 

All proceeds from the evening will go toward the building of a new bath spa at Glacier View Lodge, a place that provides care for those who live with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in the Comox Valley.

As the lodge looks to improve both the facility and the services available so that it can meet the needs of an aging population, the board of directors has approved the building of a therapeutic bath spa to replace the 32-year-old “tub room”.

The new bath spa will include the refit of a functional, ergonomic shower and bathing chair, slip resistant flooring, washable slings to safely transfer individuals and prevent injury, and heated towel racks and towels to reduce anxiety.

The 1st Tuesday Fundraiser Concert Series, now in its eighth season, is sponsored by the Mex, and pairs local musicians with their favourite charities on the first Tuesday of each month.

For more information, contact event organizers Judy and Bruce Wing at www.judyandbruce.com/1stTuesdays. For more information about the spa project or to donate to the lodge, contact Ragnhild Flakstad, director of development, at 778-440-4178 or ragnhild.flakstad@viha.ca.
