Legion hosts costume party, dance

Local dance band Exit 51 to play all-ages event to benefit cancer victim

The pop/rock dance band Exit 51 hopes to help a local cancer victim when it plays a costume-optional benefit party and dance Saturday at the Legion Hall in Parksville.

The event, featuring games, a pool table and prizes for best costume, will run from 6-11 p.m.. The live music dance begins at 9 p.m. with an all-ages session until 10 p.m., 19+ afterward. Those who arrive before 7:30 p.m. receive a chili dinner with their ticket purchase. Legion membership is not required.

Exit 51 plays a mix of danceable hits of the past 30 years, including both classic rock and modern hits. “Think Tragically Hip to Bruno Mars,” band member and dance organizer Andy Telfer said. Funds raised will go to support 25-year-old Aimee Pope, who is battling cancer, Telfer added.

Tickets are $20, available by calling Telfer at 250-927-4309 or 250-752-4486.
