Pyper headling First Tuesday Fundraiser

The upcoming 1st Tuesday Fundraiser sponsored by the Mex Pub will be on April 3 and will feature awarding winning singer/songwriter Sue Pyper with a little help from her friends Lainie Laughlin (of Coast to Coast) and Katrina Mifsud (of the Jilli Martini Trio), raising funds for the Comox Valley Hospice Society.

The Comox Valley Hospice Society is a local organization that supports people living with dying, grieving and caregiving. With the support of local businesses, private donations, and community partners, CVHS hopes to ensure that each person receives the care that matters most to them whether at home, in a care facility, in the community hospice or in hospital.

Programs include grief counselling, compassionate presence, respite support, vigils, walking groups, music therapy and various types of alternative healing such as reiki and healing touch. In addition, the Comox Valley Hospice Society provides on-going community education on advance care planning to help people make their wishes for medical care known in the event they are ever unable to speak for themselves.

Sue Pyper is an award-winning Canadian singer/songwriter originally from London, U.K. Her personal travels, both geographical and emotional, have inspired gentle, insightful, and heartfelt songs that look at life from all angles and visit themes of both hope and hardship.

The London born singer/songwriter immigrated to B.C. in 2000, where she has charmed audiences with her beautiful vocals, eloquent songwriting, and an unpredictable British “inside voice” that occasionally finds its way over the microphone.

The Comox Valley Foodbank Society, (CVFS) a regular at the event, will be there to accept food donations for families in the valley who are in need.

The evening starts at 7:30 p.m. with a short set by hosts Coast to Coast, (Scott Lyle, Lainie Laughlin and Corey Francis), with the main attraction at 8 p.m.
