Laugh it up for St. Ann’s School

The Lodge in Quesnel is hosting a comedy night fundraiser May 3

The Lodge will be hosting a fundraiser for St. Ann’s School on Friday, May 3.

They have brought in Big Dog Comedy with Tom Bassett and two additional comedians and will also be providing dinner, dessert and a cash bar.

“We enjoy helping all types of groups have fundraisers at The Lodge,” said Angie Wesselink. “Giving back to the community is very important to both Ken and myself.”

St. Ann’s is close to Angie and Ken’s heart, as their son attends the school.

All 130 St. Ann’s students and their families will benefit from this fundraiser, allowing for lower tuition rates for the private school.

“This school has been great for our family, and so many others,” said Ken Zacharias. “Our son is learning in an environment that fosters compassion, respect and morals.”

A $60 ticket will provide you with a catered dinner and dessert (by Craig’s Table), one free drink from the bar and an evening of “side-splitting” laughter.

For more details, find the event on The Lodge’s Facebook page.

Tickets are available now at CJ Directory and K-Max.
