Send singing telegrams of love around Quesnel

Pride Society has musical fundraiser

When someone gives you a song in your heart, there’s no better person to have a song sent to their ears. In fact, why not give them that song in a form that ignites all their senses - even their sense of humour?

The Quesnel Pride Society (QPS) is raising money by raising the spirits of love with a brand new service they are offering the public, the Spectacular Sweetheart Singing Telegrams. QPS has assembled a number of talented local performers whom you can bid on to send to the loved one whose affections you are also bidding for.

“I have coordinated with 13 local talented individuals that are in eight groups ready to perform on Saturday, Feb. 11 and Tuesday, Feb. 14. This event is similar to a silent auction and people will be able to bid on a performer and a set time. Highest bid wins and all proceeds will go to the Pride Society,” said main organizer Stacey Hanrahan. “You can bid on a singing telegram and their time slot, and if you win the bid, the telegram goes to your friend/sweetheart/lover’s location and serenades them with song of loooooove.”

All the bidding can be done on the Facebook page QPS created to direct the Valentine’s Day traffic: The Spectacular Sweetheart Singing Telegrams site, or use the link from the Quesnel Pride Society’s main Facebook page.

“We have magical Hawaiian mermaids mesmerizing you with their hypnotic melodies, as well as elegant dames and gents ready to serenade your lover(s) with sweet sounds of locally written ditties, classic honky-tonk sounds of Hank Williams, or love ballads from the world-renowned Adele,” said Hanrahan. “Let your loved one know they are music to your heart.”

Book your favourite act, on a sliding cost scale, or lay down bids for the feature performances.
