Forward House barbecue set for July 22

Forward House is hosting their annual summer barbecue and fundraiser on July 22.

The fun evening and awareness raising event will include food, treats, games and entertainment as well as a great social atmosphere, promised executive director Carol Richardson.

Everyone is invited down for the evening which will include food of both the carnivore and vegan varieties, she said (there is a small charge for the food) and pointed out she was excited about the free ice cream that will be offered. 

Each year they fundraise for different specific projects and this year she said the money “will go towards mundane but very important things.”

“It all supports mental health,” she said of work they need to do on the house like installing new eaves troughs, securing some new storage space and making their art studio and meeting spaces more functional.

“We have to keep the house together, both literally and figuratively.”

Richardson said they have been lucky with great weather in previous years, “knock on wood,” she said, adding it will be a fun evening rain or shine.

There will be a bocce tournament, fundraising auction and of course any donations will be much appreciated.

The event runs Friday, July 22 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Forward House, 129 E. Jensen Ave. across from city hall in Parksville. 

Call 250-954-0785 or e-mail forwardhouse@bcsupernet.com for more info.
