St. Patrick is helping St. Nick this year.
Shamrocks and Holly, a fundraiser for the Surrey Christmas Bureau (SCB), will be held on Sunday at Kennedy’s Sports Pub in Delta. Festivities begin at 11:30 a.m. and continue to 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 and include a burger or chicken strips lunch.
“We have four hours of great live Celtic entertainment arranged,” said event organizer, Thoralea Pilton, a Douglas College Service Learning Student. “It will be a good way to enjoy a holiday afternoon and support an excellent cause at the same time.”
Local musician Michelle Carlisle will play traditional whistle and flute. Piper Garth Newlands will share ancient laments and airs, followed by the lively steps of performers from the Steel School of Irish Dance. Local Celtic band, Copper Sky, will also fill the air with the sounds of fiddle, guitar, singing and drumming.
KC Gilroy, coordinator at the SCB, appreciates St. Patrick’s help.
“To keep up with the growing Christmas assistance levels needed in Surrey, we must now fundraise all year long. This supportive event shows that the organizers really care about their community and the people who live in it.”
Shamrocks and Holly takes place March 18. The event includes a silent auction, 50/50 draws, and raffles. Kennedy’s Sports Pub is located at 11906 88 Ave.
