XLR8 into the Mex!

The Mex Pub and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce invite you to a Run For The Cure fundraiser for breast cancer this Saturday.

The Valley’s own XLR8 will bring their entertaining stage show featuring music from the ’70s and ’80s through to the 2000s with humourous antics led by frontman Mr D. along with Billy Young on guitars, Randy Z on bass, Rick Bossom on keyboards and Johnny B on percussion.

There are 120 tickets at $20 each, available at the CIBC branch downtown, which sells out every year.

The Mex features a Burger & Beer Special from 6 to 9 p.m. with 50/50 draws, Best Decorated Bra Contest for men and women and at 9:30 XLR8 will hit the stage.

Donations at the door after 9:30. All proceeds for the Run For The Cure go towards breast cancer research.

For more information, contact Tracy at CIBC (250-338-6751) or Roy at The Mex (250-703-9573).
