Response to refugee show is magical

On behalf of the Qualicum Refugee Sponsorship Group 2017, thanks to everybody who attended our Spectacular Magic show on Sunday afternoon in Qualicum Beach.

Indeed, we had a very “spectacular” response from the many local residents who came to enjoy a wonderful show and silent auction. Thanks especially to the PQB News, the Town of Qualicum Beach, Quality Foods, Creekmore Coffee, The Source Qualicum Beach, Parks West, Qualicum Stationers, Little Qualicum Cheeseworks, The Beach and The Lounge and Culligan Water for their contributions to this successful event.

Also, thanks to the many businesses and individuals who contributed wonderful items for our silent auction. Most of all, we are grateful to the amazing performers who provided such a wonderful afternoon of entertainment: Paul Romhany, Eric Bedard and The Magic of Zanthera; and to all the children, whose laughter rang out in the civic centre! Events like this will help us meet our goal of supporting the settlement of another refugee family in the Qualicum area.
