SURREY â€” A concert celebrating the memory of murdered hockey mom Julie Paskall will be held in Vancouver this month.
Funds raised at â€œAn Evening of Song & Danceâ€ will be donated to Variety â€“ The Childrenâ€™s Charity.
The event, set for Friday, May 23 at WISE Hall on Adanac Street, is organized by musician Johnny DeMarco, who works as a longshoreman with Paskallâ€™s husband, Al.
â€œWe want to raise awareness but also funds for the Variety charity, because Al has a handicapped daughter,â€ DeMarco told the Now.
DeMarcoâ€™s band will include Rick Fedyk (drums) and Todd Ronning (bass), Ray Roper (guitar) and Darryl Havers (keys), plus guest members of The Jardines. Event tickets are $20 at the door.
Paskall was beaten to death outside Newton Arena in December while waiting for her son to finish refereeing a hockey game. Investigators are still searching for her killer.
