Amid the Thanksgiving celebrations this weekend is the opportunity to give a hand-up to a longtime community booster.

Sherrie Favell is in the middle of a series of chemo treatments for stage 4 cancer, a recurrence of the ovarian cancer she fought eight years ago.

A group combined of family and friends has organized a dinner dance this Saturday, Oct. 10 at the Seniors Fifth Avenue Activity Centre from 4 p.m. to midnight.

An occasion to celebrate life with good friends, good food and great entertainment, proceeds will help Favell pay her bills while she  takes some time off work to deal with the debilitating effects of chemo.

Everyone is welcome to join the fun and good food.

Dinner is buffet-style with beef on a bun, salads and desserts, followed by dancing to fabulous tunes spun by radio morning man Patrick Riley.  Think Christmas and birthdays and choose from fabulous silent auction items.

Tickets are $20 for dinner and dancing or $10 for dancing only. They are available at Harbourfront Massage, 250-833-1103, or from Penny Favell at 250-253-0574 after 5 p.m. on weekdays.
