Tonight is Megaphone magazine’s second annual Night of Joyful Voices fund-raising event. Doors open at 8pm at Café deux Soleils (2096 Commercial Drive). David Vertesi, from local Vancouver band Hey Ocean!, the exquisite sounds of Julia and Her Piano, and Vancouver-based Ladner, featuring BCCLA executive director David Eby on guitar and vocals, are featured performers. But the night also includes a chance to win some drool-worthy raffle prizes and the opportunity to bid on a one-on-one lunch with the much-discussed Mt. Pleasant MLA Jenny Kwan.
So come out and support Megaphone, your local street paper that gives Vancouver’s homeless and low-income vendors a chance to make some money, and provides the city with a range of journalism and story-telling that is hard to find anywhere else. Your support is greatly appreciated. (If you can’t make it but would like to purchase a ticket as a way to donate to this wonderful organization, you can do so here.) See you tonight!
