Turning fun into funds will help the Syrian Refugee Support Committee to bring in another family. Our first family arrives early October.

Fundraiser on Sept. 26 for Syrian Refugee Support Committee

What can we do to help during one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters?

We can support a local group who is raising funds to sponsor Syrian families.

The good news is that you get to eat decadent desserts, listen to great music, and dance!  Saturday Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Lower Elks on 6th in Courtenay, the fan favourite Flying Debris will be making music; good old rock and roll and beautiful blues.

Flying Debris has been entertaining the Valley for 14 years, often sharing their many talents for a good cause.  Jim Hunter will perform a number of his own soulful blues and upbeat rock.

The Valley’s many creative restaurants, such as the Atlas and Locals and bakeries, such as the Cakebread Artisan Bakery, will feed you delicious decadent desserts. There will be a wonderful selection of auction items, from local wineries and beauty salons to fashion and the practical, and even a plane ride. There will be a cash bar so you can wet your whistle.

Tickets are $25 and available at Laughing Oyster and Blue Heron bookstores.  Tickets will be at the door, please phone 250 339-4975 to reserve them.

Turning fun into funds will help the Syrian Refugee Support Committee to bring in another family. Our first family arrives early October.

 

The Valley with a big heart again has the opportunity to give a hand up. All funds raised go to support the family for a year. Donations are eligible for income tax receipts and cheques should be made out to “Christ the King Parish” with Refugee Fund on the Memo Line. For more info please see our Facebook at Syrian Refugee Support Committee or email clamulgrew@gmail.com.
