Talent show for a cause this weekend

The Talent 2 Remember show will help send aid workers to the Dominican Republic

The Saanich Peninsula Presbyterian Church presents Talent 2 Remember this weekend.

This weekend, the Saanich Peninsula Presbyterian Church is hosting Talent 2 Remember, a talent show with proceeds going to benefit people in need in the Dominican Republic.

The show, which takes place Saturday, Nov. 1, will start with dinner at 5 p.m. and the show will follow at 7 p.m.

The show will feature the local talent of the Craig Henderson Trio, singer Tristan Thompson and a magic show by The Great Jordano of Tricky Magic.

Funds raised will go towards church volunteers who are building houses in the Dominican Republic for people in need.

“There’s a Canadian ministry called The House Upon the Rocks Ministry and part of what they do is build housing in the Dominican Republic for those who require it,” explained Diane Cunningham from the church, adding that four volunteers (two of which are teens) from the church will be traveling to the Dominican in March to help build houses, take down school supplies and offer their help in medical clinics.

She said she hopes the talent show is a success and that it raises some much-needed funds to help them out on their trip.

“The performers are donating their time and talent and we can’t thank them enough for that. I’ve been amazed and overwhelmed at their generosity,” said Cunningham, adding that the event won’t only serve as a fundraiser but also a way to connect members of the church and the community.

“Anything that we do as a Presbyterian church do is not only to fundraise but also to connect with the community,” she explained.

Tickets for the event are $25 for dinner and the show or $15 for the show only. Call Darlene at 250-516-0563 or Diane at 250-886-0989 for more information.
