hilliwack Restorative Justice and Youth Advocacy Association are having a fundraising event “Blacktie Beanfest” to raise much needed funds to continue the great work that they do to keep our community safe and healthy.
On Friday, February 14th, 2014 the stage will be set for an exciting Variety show featuring ‘The Magic of the Mind’ Hypnotist Lee Dyson (photo above) and ‘Essence of Elvis’ Jeff Bodner. Executive Director Kathy Funk said “what a perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day and we are making this event all about giving back”.
Mike Csoka, Chilliwack Bowls of Hope Society said, “Supplying beans for this event is a great partnership for the work that we do in this community”. A portion of the ticket sales will go as a donation to their society.
Tickets will go on sale this week at $50.00 each or a table of 10 for $400.00. Most of the money will be income tax receipted. There will be fun extras like photo booths and other vignettes along with a no host bar.
Both Lee and Jeff know first hand the effectiveness of Restorative Justice in this Community having seen the program in action over the years in their career as RCMP members. Hypnotist Lee Dyson brings a thorough knowledge of hypnosis to every event having been trained with Las Vegas headliners and world class authors on the subject. Lee has a gregarious personality and will have everyone involved fully engaged. Jeff Bodner has been an Elvis performer since 1987 and over the past few years he has brought his act to a level of quality and unmatched professionalism in his field. Together they promised a show to remember.
