This Friday is Megaphone's Night of Joyful Voices fundraising concert at Cafe Deux Soleils (2096 Commercial Drive). It's going to be a most joyous occasion with David Vertesi (from Hey Ocean!), Ladner (featuring BCCLA executive director David Eby), Julia and her Piano, and comedian Graham Clark. Tickets are $15. All proceeds raised from the event will go toward Megaphone's vendor program.
And we also have some pretty incredible prizes and gifts that you can win (just in time for the gift giving season).
Win a lunch with Jenny Kwan. The Mount Pleasant MLA has been at the centre of the NDP leadership storm that just saw leader Carole James step down. Bid on having lunch with the progressive politician and pick her brain about the controversy and let her know what you think of the matter.
