Small groups of Oak Bay High choir students are available to serenade your sweetheart Feb. 14.

The choral groups divvy up to serenade loved ones while delivering a rose, chocolates and a card with personal message for a small fee, raising funds for the school programs.

“It brings incredible excitement and joy and makes people feel special,” said Caitlin Troughton, who makes the Love-a-gram return performance this year.

“It’s a surprise, people loved it,” agreed fellow singer and Grade 12 student Patricia Horwood. “It makes people cry sometimes.”

Students offer a song, chocolate, flower and card for $35 as a fundraiser for the varied and award-winning choral programs at Oak Bay High.

“We’re so invested in the program. It means so much to us,” Caitlin said. “We want to raise funds so it can continue and people can have the same experiences and the same opportunities we’ve had.”

An Oak Bay High choir program Love-a-gram is available Feb. 14 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Call 250-598-3361 and ask for the choir room to book.
