Benefit helps children in need
Eight bands lent their musical talents to help Variety – The Children’s Charity on Feb. 8 at the Tsawwassen Legion, raising more than $2,400 to help B.C. kids with special needs.
The fundraiser was headlined by Jerry Doucette and the Doucette band, and was in memory of Rhyan Gordon, step-son of Doucette’s band mate Ken Boychuk. Rhyan was a child who had special needs and recently passed away at the age of 34.
Jerry and Ken will make an appearance on the Variety Show of Hearts Telethon on Global BC this Saturday (Feb. 16) to present the cheque for the total amount raised.
Helping to put on the event was Terry Nylander of the Tsawwassen Legion No. 289, The Blues Piggies, Tin Pan Alley, Southside Vibe, Paul Tobin, Delta 88, The Simpson Brothers Band, the Delta Police Pipe Band, and all the generous donors who showed their hearts for children who special needs.
