I just heard about this yesterday--announced from the stage during a break at the Saturday afternoon Dance Party at the Fairview. There will be a fundraiser taking place on Wed Feb 12th with the brilliant Nadine States and Incognitio to raise money for families who have children being treated for cancer. This isn't aimed at out-of- town families who are supplied with accommodation during their sojourn in Vancouver while their child is undergoing treatment, but rather is for the benefit of those who live in outlying commuting-distance areas, and who drive hundreds of miles back and forth commuting for chemo appointments and the like. These are the people who fall through the cracks, paying hundreds of dollars in gas costs, (plus taking time off work) etc.. I couldn't find much information about this event on the 'Net unfortunately, (needs some PR work!) but the Fairview calendar simply posts for Feb 12th:
Incognito Kids with Cancer Fundraiser 6 - 9:30 $25
So there it is, $25, a bit pricey, but for an excellent cause. And if you haven't heard Nadine States sing yet, you are in for a treat. Will add more information here if I get any.
