Lantzville fire tragedy sparks helping hand from the Rocking Horse

NANOOSE BAY — The Rocking Horse Pub will host a fundraiser for the families who were victims of the Jan. 25 house fire at the Nanoose First Nation.

Organizer Stuart Parenteau said he has brought together bands The Enablers, Beat Rymn, Boney Finger Band, Wavelength, Dave Marco and others for a jam this Sunday, Feb. 12, from 4 to 11 p.m.

There will be a silent auction, draws, a Lions meat draw and the pub is donating the proceeds from the first 46 burgers sold to the families.

All proceeds go to those families, said Parenteau, adding the event is free to attend.
