Pair of Parrot Heads Club fundraisers for Todd Butler

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.
