Jilli Martini fundraising concert to support Make-A-Wish and the Comox Valley Food Bank

The Jilli Martini Band is dedicating this Friday Night’s Music night to a very special cause.

Make-A-Wish Foundation is an organization that helps to make wishes come true for children with life-threatening illnesses.

This was the case for a Comox Valley child, Jessica (daughter of Amber and Alex Wilcox) who was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2008. Make-A-Wish foundation granted Jessica her wish, and her family is eternally grateful for this. Jessica succumbed to the disease in 2009 but Jessica’s legacy will live on, in making other sick kids’ wishes come true.

Please come this Friday and help us support this worthwhile cause.

Jessica’s mom, Amber, will be there selling the “Make-A-Wish stars for $5 each. Come honour this strong little girl, and help us keep the wishes happening for others, in her loving memory. For info about Make-A -ish visit www.makeawishbc.ca.

We will also be accepting donations for the local food bank from now and through the holiday season. Let’s make a difference together. Minors 12 years and up are welcome to come to Billy D’s now, with a parent, until 10 p.m. So come on downtown this Friday, Dec. 21 at  8 p.m. to enjoy some live entertainment and support Jessica’s cause and the food bank.
