Fundraiser for care centre

Bare 'n Von Hair, made up of Matt Day and Gord Graber, will take the stage at the Comox Pentecostal Church on Sept. 29

The Comox Valley Pregnancy Care Centre will host a fundraiser filled with music and laughs.

Musical humourist group Bare ‘n Von Hair, made up of Matt Day and Gord Graber, will take the stage at the Comox Pentecostal Church on Sept. 29 at 7 p.m.

Tickets cost $15 and proceeds go the the Pregnancy Care Centre.

Julie Le Goff, executive director for the Pregnancy Care Centre, looks forward to the act and notes it’s suitable for all ages.

“It’s rare we get a really good clean comedy act in town for this price, and I think it’s going to be a wonderful event to come out to and to feel comfortable, even bringing young kids,” says Le Goff, adding the duo does musical parodies among other things. “It will be fun and entertaining and for a good price — and for a good cause.”

Quality Foods in Comox has agreed to donate refreshments for the evening, so free coffee, tea, and goodies will be available during the intermission.

The theatre seats 300, and Le Goff is hoping for a full house, as this event is important to raise funds for the centre’s yearly operation.

“It’s helping us to be able to stay open in order to help serve pregnant women and it’s one of our — we do annually an event like this to fundraise — so it’s our once-a-year big concert that we do in order to bring in money and keep us going through the year,” she explained.

The Comox Valley Pregnancy Care Centre has been serving the Comox Valley since 1991, offering services such as free pregnancy tests, peer options counselling, community referrals, abortion recovery help and support, a miscarriage and infant loss support group, and baby and maternity clothing.

For more information or advance tickets, stop by the Comox Valley Pregnancy Care Centre at 785 Sixth Street in Courtenay or call 250-334-0058. Tickets will also be available at the door of the Comox Pentecostal Church at 1919 Guthrie Rd. in Comox.
