Three things to do this week (Nov. 7 to 9)

1 If the word "selfless" doesn’t immediately come to mind when you think of Surrey youth, perhaps it’s time to check what you know about young people in the city. A Moonlight Masquerade party, put on by youth-run not-for-profit society Beneath One Sky, is set to benefit a local ‘Backpack Run’ as well as give to ANCOP (Answering the Cry of the Poor) Canada and SOS Children’s Village BC. The Moonlight Masquerade takes place Friday (Nov. 7) at 7 p.m. at Surrey City Hall (13450 104th Avenue). Tickets must be purchased in advance at

2 For 40 years, Roy Forbes has been a staple in the Canadian music scene, contributing shows, broadcasts and records to his lengthy career. If you’re lucky enough to snag one of the few tickets to his upcoming performance at the Surrey Arts Centre’s 129-seat Studio Theatre, you’ll get an intimate peek at his live show, as well as a chance to meet and mingle with the performer as he’ll be signing copies of his newest album. Tickets to the show are $25 and can be purchased at The show’s at 8 p.m. Friday (Nov. 7).

3 Those looking to up their business profile while feeding their philanthropic side will find opportunities at a Fall Networking Social this Saturday (Nov. 8). Held at Blue Frog Studios (1328 Johnston Rd.), the event will host guest speakers from posAbilities, Rotary@Work and Make Your Mark. For just $35, the ticket price includes entertainment, Mexican food and drinks and a $35 coupon towards art purchases. For tickets, visit
