SURREY — The Yuletide Blues benefit concert hosted by White Rock Blues Society will celebrate its 10th anniversary on Sunday (Dec. 4).

The annual event returns to the Pacific Inn Resort, 1160 King George Blvd., starting at 5 p.m. in the hotel’s Costa Brava room.

Several blues musicians will donate their time to the cause, a fundraiser for the Sources food bank in South Surrey/White Rock.

Featured bands include Blues Piggies, Gale Force Blues Band, Harpdog Brown, Arsen Shomakhov Trio, Brandon Isaak, Jason Buie Band, Lauren Webb, Holly Arntzen and the Cooler Kings.

Admission is $15 plus two non-perishable food items.

“Over the years, thousands of dollars and countless pounds of food have been raised with the help of local blues musicians and WRBS volunteers for this good cause,” the blues society says in a message to its patrons.

“The need and the tradition continues.”
