The Vanier Improv team is hosting a spaghetti dinner fundraiser.

Spaghetti and improv: The perfect combo

Tickets $20 or $60 for a family

This Saturday, April 11, Vanier Improv hosts a spaghetti dinner fundraiser, complete with great food, wonderful entertainment, and an incredible silent auction!

“The Comox Valley community has been so generous,” says Lori Mazey, a teacher at Vanier and the school’s improv coach. “Not only in sharing their talent, but also in donating food for the dinner and so many tremendous silent auction items. Those attending should make sure to bring their wallets because they will be able to go home with some amazing deals.”

The dinner will have gluten free and vegetarian options. It will also be accompanied by performances from Vanier’s improv team, among other singing and dancing performances from some of the Comox Valley’s most outstanding performers.

All the proceeds go towards helping the Vanier improvisers get to Ottawa to take part in the Canadian Improv Games National tournament and festival, as Vancouver Island’s representatives.

“It is definitely a huge honour to represent Vancouver Island at Nationals,” said Sara Kozack, one of the team’s captains, and all of the improvisers are looking forward to so much about this experience.

Jeff Daniels, who is returning to Nationals for the second year, said it’s always an educational experience.

“I’m most excited to learn from so many other improvisers from around the country, and to just meet new and exciting like-minded people,” said Daniels. “It’s really just a genuine, fun, learning experience.”

Tickets for the show are $20 or $60 for a family, with all proceeds going to the students’ travel costs. Tickets are available at Shamrock Vet, Laughing Oyster Books, from improvisers or by emailing Lori Mazey @ lori.mazey@sd71.bc.ca
