News:: Barney Bentall charity event in Vancouver

I'm not much to preach at people. Seriously, do what you want. You don't need me to tell you what's up. But in Vancouver, homelessness is a huge problem. It's hard enough to afford a place to live as a double income family, let alone as someone without all the normal comforts. We (tax payers) are spending all this cash on the Olympics and trying to simply push the homeless people farther outside the city limits which is a huge shortsighted answer.

So, given the chance to tell people about a way to help is something we are always happy to do. Barney Bentall & The Legendary Hearts are hosting a fund raiser for the Potluck Cafe. Here's the important info:

December 14th & 15th @ The St. James Community Square
3214 West 10th Avenue/Doors @ 7 PM/Show @ 8PM

Rather than try to articulate the information, I'm going to point you to the words Ken over at Killbeat wrote:
Barney Bentall & The Legendary proudly Present: Grand Cariboo OPRY Fundraiser For The Potluck Café Society

Featuring: Leslie Alexander, Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall, Wendy Bird, Kendel Carson, Cameron Latimer, Matt Masters, & Leeroy Stagger

The Grand Cariboo Opry featuring Barney Bentall & Guests rolls into Vancouver for another two highly anticipated shows this December. Following 2 sold out shows in Vancouver last year, the Opry is fast becoming an annual fund raising event in support of the Potluck Café Society and residents of the Downtown Eastside.

The Opry is a highly entertaining classic variety show experience hosted by Barney Bentall as he works through his very humorous and highly entertaining monologues (think Prairie Home Companion) and fronts a big band consisting of The Legendary Hearts augmented with lap steel, fiddle and piano. The dynamic evening includes the guests above all along for the musical hootenanny. Everyone plays and everyone sings...sometimes all at once.

The theme is western/country/roots...some classics reinterpreted! In addition, to outstanding music, this show is chalked full of humour, warm wit and song sponsorships reminiscent of another time and place. The Opry is a one of a kind experience that's not to be missed!

More than just a great musical event, the Opry is an important charitable fund raiser for the Potluck Café Society. Last year, the Opry raised enough money to feed 5,000 nutritious meals to some of the neediest residents living in the Downtown Eastside. From the charming Potluck Café located in the heart of Vancouver, the Society prepares and serves over 30,000 nutritious meals per year to needy Downtown Eastside residents, in addition to its employment and training program and community kitchens.

Each ticket sold for the Opry will provide roughly 10 nutritious meals, an incredible contribution to our community. Come share in the magic that is the Grand Cariboo Opry.
