With the official “headquarters” of the Vancouver Island Parrot Heads Club (fans of Jimmy Buffet music) being the Comox Valley, it is fitting that proceeds from their November Party With A Purpose fundraisers will benefit a local guy.
On Friday, Nov. 6, there is a ticketed event ($20 each) at The Roy Pub in Royston, where guests can dine and enjoy a show with Calgary entertainer and fellow Parrot Head Chuck Rose.
On Nov. 7, the Mex will be transformed into a tropical paradise with an entertainment doubleheader: Rose will open the night, and the evening will be capped off with more high-energy dance tunes from The Rangers, formerly Pacific Disturbance. While there is no cover charge for the Mex event, admission is by donation, $10 minimum suggested.
Proceeds from both parties will be donated to the recovery fund for local entertainer Todd Butler and to the organization’s “pet” non-profit, the Parrot Refuge in Coombs, which provides a permanent home for abandoned parrots from around the world.
Info about the new club will be available at each event.
