Party hardy and help out SOS

Local DJ offers share of February bookings to Society of Organized Services

Organize your party while supporting the S.O.S.

Through the end of February, you can spice up your party and give back to the community at the same time.

Drop the Needle Entertainment DJ and Musical Entertainment provides traditional DJ services and unique party games for weddings, pubs, family reunions, anniversaries and birthdays. From now until Feb. 29, the company will donate $100 to the Society of Organized Services from every confirmed booking over $400.

The SOS has been in operation in the mid-Island since 1968, helping people from all walks of life as far north as Bowser and as far south as Nanoose Bay.

Drop the Needle Entertainment co-owner and longtime Parksville resident, Craig McNeil, has directly benefited from SOS’s community services and has seen the organization touch the lives of his friends and family.

“It has been a cornerstone in defining what we want to be as a community, and I want to give back,” said NcNeil.

“Take the stress out of planning for your special day by booking your party with a trusted, local business that has over 30 years of combined event planning and DJ experience, while giving back to your community in a direct and meaningful way,” he said.

To book a party or for more information, call 250-218-1071 or e-mail
