The next 1st Tuesday Fundraiser event features contemporary country music artist Brian Hazelbower.

A familiar radio personality from Nanaimo-based community radio station CHLY, Hazelbower hosted the Songwriter’s Circle for many years, and currently hosts the show Harbour City Beat, which promotes the music of Vancouver Island artists.

Hazelbower has released two albums, One in a Million and Back to the Muse, the latter of which earned him the nomination of Male Vocalist of the Year at the Vancouver Island Music Awards in 2012.

The evening starts at 7:30 p.m. and will be hosted by Judy and Bruce Wing, joined by violinist Blaine Dunaway for a diverse evening of musical entertainment.

Admission is by donation, and Hazelbower has chosen to support the Comox Valley Child Development Association.

All donation proceeds go to the charity, and representatives from the charity will be available to answer questions and provide tax receipts. Food donations in support of the Comox Valley Food Bank Society are also welcome and always much appreciated.

“We are in our seventh year of these monthly concerts, thanks to the continued sponsorship of the Mex Pub,” says event organizer Judy Wing. “The format is the same each month, but always just a little different with new musicians, supporters and different charities.

“The talent of the musicians, the generosity of the audience, and the incredible spirit of volunteerism here in the Comox Valley are a wonderful thing to experience. If you haven’t come down before and have always been meaning to, we invite you to come and have a listen. Chances are you’ll be back again next month.”

 

“The Comox Valley Child Development Association is thrilled to be part of this event,” says Joanne Schroeder, executive director of CVCDA. “We are gearing up for our 40th annual Children’s Telethon on the first of November and are grateful to all for our community support year round. All funds raised will go toward enhancing our therapeutic facilities. We are looking forward to an evening of music and friendship thanks to Brian, Judy and Bruce, and the Mex.”

The CVCDA has been a resource for families in the Comox Valley for more than three decades, providing childcare programs, support for children with special needs and their families, and consultations on many aspects of child development. A referral and consultation process allows staff to provide each family with an individualized service plan to access a wide variety of programs, most of which are fully funded.

As part of their commitment to the delivery of high quality programs, the CVCDA is certified by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF Canada), an accreditation that is recognized internationally.
