Music enthusiasts get ready: The Station Neighbourhood Pub will be hosting an evening of music based trivia in support of local community member Heather Bibby who is currently battling her second round of cancer on Saturday, November 26th.
Ms. Bibby was first diagnosed with colon cancer that she was able to beat through a surgical procedure to remove half of her colon but unfortunately had the cancer return only a few months afterward, then appearing in her liver. In October she underwent surgery to remove half of her liver and gallbladder and is currently recovering from surgery in Cranbrook, before she will return to her home in Creston.
Victoria Lang, one of Heathers friends in the valley, got together with some of her friends, hoping to start a fundraiser for Heather to gather donations and help rejuvenate some energy for her.
After seeing the success of The Stations weekly trivia night, Ms. Lang, who works at The Station, got the idea of organizing a music trivia night for people to attend. Doors will open for the trivia night starting at 7 p.m. with trivia starting at 8 p.m. and going into the evening. People are encouraged to come out and sign up as a team or compete as an individual with the opportunity to win a number of prizes in support of Ms. Bibby. There will be no entry fee for the event but donations will be accepted that will be given to Heather.
Ms. Lang said trivia night will be a fun opportunity for everyone to attend even if you have never met Heather before.
This is a fundraiser for an incredible person, she said. Shes an incredible human, an incredible positive person who just wants to regain her life and come back to the Columbia Valley. She needs our support right now and whether you know her or you dont, she deserves our support.
