It will officially be released at the Friday Night Jam at Lumby’s Blue Ox Pub Dec. 20.

“All proceeds from CD sales will go towards the new Lumby Community Stage Fund administered by the White Valley Community Resource Centre,” said organizer Randy Rauck of Viva Promotions.

Donations can also be made directly to the resource centre or online at Charitable tax receipts will be made available.

The CD release party will feature the CD played in its entirety at 8 p.m., with live music starting at 9 p.m. featuring The Mabel Lickers Band.

Jamming starts at 10 p.m. The CD will also be played during all breaks.

“CDs cost $15 each, or two for $10 each, at the party and make great stocking stuffers,” said Rauck, adding, “It will be a fun time and a great cause.”
