Fab event raises $3,000 for Rotary Club of South Surrey

A Beatles-tribute evening at the Crescent Legion raised around $3,000 toward efforts to help sponsor a canine assisted intervention team.

It didn’t spark a revolution, but a sold-out Beatles-tribute evening at the Crescent Legion did raise around $3,000 toward the Rotary Club of South Surrey’s efforts to help sponsor a Pacific Assistance Dogs Society canine assisted intervention team.

More than 100 people turned out to listen to the Fab Fourever band – featuring Jody Tennant, Charles Boname, Kevin Davey and Paul Kaszonyi as Paul McCartney, George Harrison, John Lennon and Ringo Starr, respectively – perform more than two dozen Beatles favourites, from I Saw Her Standing There to Twist and Shout.

The Rotary club is working to raise $15,000 for a PADS dog team. The non-profit society breeds, raises and trains certified assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities other than blindness. As well, the Burnaby-based organization trains canine assisted intervention dog teams, which work with victims of crime, including as support to young sexual assault victims in the courtroom.

Other fundraisers held this year to benefit the Rotary club’s goal have included a pair of document-shredding events.
