Music For A Cause will be a fundraiser and dance at the Vernon Elks Hall Saturday from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Tickets will be available at the door for a minimum suggested donation of $10.

Shirley Boomer is putting together the event to help her son Curtis, 21, who has malignant brain tumours.

“We want to help concentrate on his healing and not on his financial situation,” said Boomer.

Curtis began experiencing persistent headaches and double vision, and, in July, had surgery to relieve some pressure on the brain.

“I am doing a fundraiser to help Curtis so he can relax from the constant worry about money on top of going through his medical problems,” said Boomer. “Curtis’ life is on hold for now, but with his positive and pleasant nature and outlook on life, he will get on with his life plans as soon as his health issues are resolved.”

The fundraiser will include a silent auction.

Local artists slated to perform at the dance include Linda-Sue Wilson and Band; the Les Copeland Band; Duane Marchand; and Wayne Ratz.
