Folk Club donates signed guitar, cash

North Saanich resident Laura Williams 12, a keen musician, is the winner of a guitar package raffled by the Deep Cove Folk Club.

The package includes a lessons and a Blueridge acoustic guitar autographed by all the featured performers appearing at the Folk Club during the 2011-12 season. Among them is folk legend James Keelaghan.

Half the proceeds from the raffle – $356 – were donated to the youth group of St. John’s United Church to support its humanitarian work in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. The club’s share, along with a generous grant from the Community Arts Council of the Saanich Peninsula will be used to bring professional and developing musicians to the Peninsula.

The regular Deep Cove Folk Club evenings are held at St. John’s United Church, 10990 West Saanich Rd. at 8 p.m. on the second Friday of each month, September through June.

The guitar was donated by the Acoustic Guitar online store.
