This year the Cowichan Valley Red Serge fundraising dinner has a new location and very special guest entertainer.

Ken Lavigne is a highly acclaimed tenor who, for the last nine years, has performed on many world stages, including New York’s Carnegie Hall — and now you can see him yourself and support the Tour de Rock team at the same time on Tuesday, Sept. 29 at Mellor Hall at the Cowichan Exhibition grounds.

Every year the Tour de Rock team travels down the Island raising money for pediatric cancer research, support services for local cancer patients and sending kids and their families to Camp Goodtimes, and the red serge dinner will be part of the fundraising effort.

The evening includes dinner and entertainment for only $40. There will be lots of ways to help the kids and get something great for yourself at the same time with a raffle, silent and live auction items. All the proceeds are going to Cops for Cancer – Tour de Rock.

Tickets must be purchased in advance and are available at Coast Capital Savings, Juice FM, RCMP detachment and the Canadian Cancer Society unit office. Cocktails start at 5:30 p.m., dinner at 6:30 p.m. and the amazing music stylings of Ken Lavigne at 7:30 p.m.

For more information about this event, please contact David Armstrong at 250-701-4101 or Jon Baker at or visit
