The evening also includes two talented entertainers, Alison Roberts, a Canadian College of Performing Arts graduate who has a large musical theater background and Emily Coldwell, whose musical talents have been described as “indie/acoustic with a rock and roll heart.”

Two guest speakers include Laura Clarke from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Run for the Cure and Karen Wilson, an incredibly inspirational two-time breast cancer survivor.

Tickets are $20 and are available at Recreation Oak Bay, Henderson Recreation Center, and Monterey Centre until the end of today (Sept. 25).
